A Statement from United Way Worldwide
(Sept. 13) United Way Worldwide announced today that its 2-1-1 service has been reinforced to assist those in the projected path of Hurricane Florence. Additionally, United Way has established 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 and healthier 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.
This fund will help local United Ways meet the storm-related needs and support mid- and long-term recovery efforts throughout the affected regions. With your support, we can help rebuild communities. 100% of donations given to the United Way Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund will be distributed to local United Ways in the affected areas. United Way's focus will be on mid- and long-term recovery.
