Hurricane Florence Disaster Relief

Hurricane Florence has pummeled the Carolinas with strong winds, heavy rain and dangerous tidal surges. Florence is inundating communities and leaving hundreds of thousands without power. The storm surge has been predicted to be as high as 11 feet, combining with as much as 40 inches of rain to produce catastrophic flooding. Compounding these challenges, Florence is moving very slowly with 90 mph winds and heavy rain.
     Watching families wait out the storm in shelters, wondering what will become of their homes, is heartbreaking. While disaster workers and volunteers are primarily focused on the safety and security of shelter residents, providing financial relief and emotional support to those who need it in the upcoming weeks of rebuilding is our priority. We couldn’t do it without you.
    We depend on financial donations to be able to provide hand delivered disaster relief after the first responders have moved on. We will hand deliver your donations to communities in need. We choose people who are not insured or covered by Fema. We talk to people, find out their story and degree of need and then we as a group decide on the amount to share with them to help them get on their feet. Waves of Hope USA has partnered up with many of the community groups (LBFD, LBPBA, St. MARYS of the ISLE, SKUDIN SURF, KAMCO, PROJECT11561, to help make this effort a resounding success. Together we are stronger and can help more people in need!Please donate any amount to help us to help those in their time of need. We thank you for your ongoing support!
