There are quite a few organizations and charities that have been implementing disaster relief for the families affected. Many families are in need of clothing, food, or money donations – but any contribution, big or small, helps. There are many ways that you can help Hurricane Florence victims by providing first-hand donations, or donating through other organizations. MacGregor Yachts is here to provide you with a few organizations that have been going above and beyond for Hurricane Florence survivors.

Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society

With multiple locations around the nation, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) has been helping members of the Marine Corps and the US Navy for over a century. For disaster relief, the NMCRS provides members of the Marines or Navy and their families with loans in order to replace lost items and pay insurance deductibles. People can volunteer, donate through their website, or visit one of their locations to give physical donations. Overall, the NMCRS has collected $965,000 and were able to provide for almost 2,000 victims.

Along with loans and donations from those who want to help, the NMCRS also provides other services such as financial assistance for emergency travel, and a directory of thrift store locations for families that need clothing. The NMCRS is a great non-profit organization that helps those who’ve served, along with their family members.

American Red Cross

American Red Cross is one of the most well-known organizations that provides families with disaster relief. Since Hurricane Florence hit, the American Red Cross has been taking money donations, providing shelter for families, and organizing blood drives so volunteers can donate blood to help the injured. Their main focus right now is providing the families in shelters with meals and any necessary health care they may need.

Other big companies like Google and Amazon have paired with American Red Cross to raise money. These two companies are hosting fundraising programs in which they accept donations that go straight to the American Red Cross. Google is going as far as matching $1 million dollars in donations. To help out, find your local American Red Cross, or donate here.
