"Thanks to generous donors, like Sonoco, all Red Cross disaster assistance is free", said Louise Welch Williams, regional chief executive officer of the American Red Cross, Palmetto SC Region.

Michael Jordan, a former Wilmington, N.C. resident, UNC basketball player in the 1980s and current owner of the Charlotte Hornets, is working with local organizations and the NBA to raise disaster relief funds. "Kroger customers and associates have a history of giving during times of disasters". "To all those affected, stay safe and know that we're here to help". This is your chance to pay it forward through the Red Cross. "That is what we can do so that we can ensure constant supplies are on hand, whether it be for Florence or any future storm that comes".

The American Red Cross is responding across multiple states as Hurricane Florence begins to pound coastal and inland communities, according to an update on disaster response from a local agency official.

One of the many long standing charities is the American Red Cross.

Right now donations are a great start in helping Florence victims and the volunteers aiding those in need.
