Hurricane Michael Relief

Program Summary 

Hurricane Michael slammed into Mexico Beach, Florida as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum wind speeds of 155 mph. Downgraded to a Tropical Storm, it finally moved out over the sea.

More than 1,400,000 residents were plunged into complete darkness as power failed in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Search and Rescue continues in Florida as gales of wind and walls of water splintered homes, rendering families homeless.

Hurricane Michael Rapid Response team has jumped into action and is preparing to get boots on the ground to determine where the greatest need is and see how we can help. Our team will be staging in Atlanta before making their way down to Florida, performing assessments in both Georgia and Florida as they make their way down to the panhandle. 

Please join us to help the families affected by Hurricane Michael, by donating today!
