How To Help Eastern Carolina Flood Victims

Hurricane Matthew may already be heading back out to sea, but many towns in the Eastern parts of North and South Carolina are stilling feeling it. Many homes have been destroyed by floods and supplies are desperately needed.

So how can you lend a helping hand to our neighbors to the East?

You can volunteer your time or you can make a monetary/supply donation.

The Salvation Army is helping flood victims. To donate money, go online to http://bit.ly/2dKhhuD, call 1-800-SAL-ARMY or text STORM to 51555. Donations can also be sent via mail to P.O. Box 1959, Atlanta, GA 30301.

There's a blood shortage because of the storm and many canceled donation events.

The Red Cross, which supplies about 40 percent of blood donations in the United States, is also seeking blood donors. More than 30 Red Cross blood drives in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina were canceled because of Hurricane Matthew.
