How To Help Those Affected By Hurricane Michael & Hurricane Florence

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by Hurricane Michael and Hurricane Florence, and a special thanks to all of the first responders.

Recently, Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 hurricane on Wednesday, Oct. 10. It is the third-most intense hurricane ever to make landfall in the United States, and has been called "worst storm that [the> Florida Panhandle has seen in a century." At the end of August, Hurricane Florence made landfall in the Carolinas and was expected to be one of the most powerful storms to hit the area in years.

If you would like aid in the relief effort here are ways you can help.
