Community Advocacy and Healing Project and Heal Charlotte are grassroots organizations that have begun a collaborative effort to collect resources and supplies for vulnerable communities during and after Hurricane Florence. We have begun to collect supplies and will transport supplies in the heart of impacted communities. We will distribute supplies in the heart of impacted vulnerable communities. We are based in Charlotte, NC, and  we will be distributing supplies to vulnerable communities in Wilmington, North Carolina impacted by Florence.   

We are collaborating with St. Andrews Convenant Presbytarian Church and Support the Port in Wilmington  to bring them the supplies they need.

Community Restoration Project was able to create a process was created to rescue over 400 people, by supplying life jackets, and facilitating the creation of a channel on an app used to dispatch boats to systematically oppressed communities in need of being rescued.

There was a collaborative effort to raise $25,000 in monetary donations and nearly three tons (6,000 lbs) in supplies and deployed over thirty convoys with vital supplies to Houston, Port Arthur, Baytown, and Beaumont. There was a push to place people in beds instead of cots while they received the resources and supplies they needed to restore themselves. There were forty-five families placed in hotels and Air-BnB. Families did not have to pay transportation or food.

When Hurricane Marie devastated islands, two hundred pounds of supplies were delivered to St. Thomas, St. Croix and Puerto Rico in October 2018 along with an assessment of damage. In February 2018, there was another two-hundred pound delivery of supplies to Puerto Rico and St. Thomas.

A recruitment of hundreds of incredible volunteers, collaborations, and amazing support from community based organizations such as the Lunch Ladies, Black Pflurgerville, Measure, Youth 4 Success, Wild Flower Church, Guardian Gate, Herbalist without Borders, Sierra Club and so many others.

We aided thousands of people with supplies and access to resources and it was all because others assisted us in doing do. There are pictures of the destruction, supplies, and people we were able to assist, because of you.
