Helping After Hurricane Florence
Even before massive Hurricane Florence struck the East Coast, an Operation Blessing team had positioned themselves near the disaster site. They moved quickly into flood-devastated areas of North Carolina like New Bern and Lumberton. Check out the photos of our workers and volunteers encouraging victims with food, water, hygiene supplies, flood kits, and warm meals, as well as helping them recover their damaged homes. This is only possible thanks to support from friends like you. If you’d like to volunteer to make a difference for the victims of Hurricane Florence, please visit our volunteer page to see how you can get involved.
UPDATE DECEMBER 2018
Over the past months Operation Blessing has helped people clean out their homes and distributed over 45,000 hot meals. We’ve seen a huge outpouring of love and support for our efforts in North Carolina. OBI has gotten help from a team of Puerto Ricans wanting to pay forward the aid we sent them last year. Corporate sponsors and partner organizations like Kohler, Food Lion, The Home Depot, and Chick-fil-A have gotten involved. Thousands have volunteered, including a 90-year-old Korean War veteran. The governor has visited. And most recently, Jimmy Fallon got in on the blessings when he announced that in partnership with The Home Depot, Operation Blessing would be giving a family a fully restored and furnished home!
