If You or Someone You Know Needs Assistance…
United Way of Central Alabama is ready for Hurricane Florence. We are collaborating with other United Ways, 2-1-1 Call Centers and disaster organizations in the areas that are expected be severely affected.
United Way’s 2-1-1 is a free hotline that provides information to individuals seeking community resources such as shelter, food and water, recovery support and other basic needs, before, during and after disasters.
Anyone who needs help related to Hurricane Florence can contact 2-1-1 by simply dialing 2-1-1 from a cell phone or landline. Hurricane Florence information and updates are also available by texting FLORENCE to 898-211.
Regional Support Options for Victims of Hurricane Florence
United Way is creating the United Way Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund to support local communities in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Florence.
As part of our mission to build stronger communities, and to fight for the health and safety of every person in every community, United Ways in the affected areas will continue to raise money locally and respond to emerging needs as appropriate for their community. The national fund will complement those efforts and provide a single clearinghouse for individual and corporate donors who want to impact all affected areas.
The United Ways of South Carolina Florence Recovery Fund will help United Way meet the storm-related needs and support mid and long-term recovery in South Carolina communities affected by Hurricane Florence. With your support, we can help rebuild communities in the state. 100% of individual donations given to the United Ways of South Carolina Florence Recovery Fund will be distributed to local United Ways in the affected areas of that state.
The United Way of Coastal Carolina Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund has been created to address the immediate and long-term recovery needs of communities most affected by Hurricane Florence. 100% of the contributions to the Fund will be used by the local United Ways in Cateret, Craven, Jones and Pamlico counties to address recovery needs in communities that have been declared disaster areas.
