The United Way Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund
United Way created the United Way Hurricane Florence Recovery Fund to support local communities in South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia 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.
