Hurricane Michael Relief: How You Can Help
October 12, 2018 1:59 PM
With sudden fury, Hurricane Michael made landfall on Wednesday in the Florida Panhandle. One of the most intense hurricanes ever to hit the United States, Michael continued to devastate communities as it stretched a path through Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia. We want to thank the first-responders who are working around the clock to sort through the rubble and provide aid.
The efforts of everyone this week have been inspiring, yet these communities still need any help you can give, no matter where you are. Hurricane Michael will continue to impact the lives of many, long after the storm has passed.
America is always at our best when we look out for each other. Please do what you can to help people recover and rebuild from Hurricane Michael. https://t.co/psmPZnmlqY
