Governor Roy Cooper urges North Carolinians to volunteer and support communities impacted by Hurricane Florence this week and in the weeks and months ahead.

Projects are planned in the counties of Carteret, Craven, Onslow, New Hanover, Franklin, Bladen, Scotland, Robeson, Brunswick, and Duplin. Organizations involved include Ann Street United Methodist Church, Baptists on Mission, Team Rubicon, Operation Blessing and other faith-based, non-profit organizations.  Click HERE for more information.

“We must work together during this critical time for our state,” said Governor Cooper. “These projects provide direct opportunities to rebuild North Carolina after Hurricane Florence.” 

Ongoing volunteer opportunities available through VolunteerNC.org can help survivors of Hurricane Florence immediately and throughout the recovery process. 

Opportunities can include serving meals, gathering and distributing essential supplies to those in need, and helping clean out and repair damaged homes.

To register for volunteer opportunities as an individual or with a group, visit VolunteerNC.org and complete the online volunteer survey.
