Disaster Relief Drive

The Buddhist Faith Fellowship is responding to this humanitarian need caused by Hurricane Florence by initiating a fundraiser that we directly assist the American Red Cross efforts. 

For every donation received the Fellowship will match it up to $100. This special relief drive will last through the month of October.

Please consider helping our South and North Carolina countrymen as they rebuild their lives in the wake of devastation caused by flooding and wind from Hurricane Florence.

What is the American Red Cross doing? In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, thousands of people in North Carolina and South Carolina are still staying in Red Cross and community shelters. In total, the Red Cross and other organizations have provided nearly 100,000 overnight stays in emergency shelters across the Carolinas and Virginia.
Working with partners, the Red Cross has served about 323,000 meals and snacks. In partnership with the Southern Baptists, the Red Cross is planning to serve some 100,000 meals per day, which are being prepared in multiple field kitchens. 

Volunteer mental health and health services professionals have provided some 11,000 contacts to provide support and care to evacuees. We’ve also distributed more than 8,800 relief items. Since September 11, more than 4.7 million weather alerts have been sent through Red Cross apps to help people make lifesaving decisions.

More than 3,300 Red Cross disaster workers from all over the country have mobilized to help shelter, feed and support people affected by Florence during this relief operation. The Red Cross has also mobilized more than 140 emergency response vehicles and more than 110 trailers of equipment and supplies.

HOW YOU CAN HELP? The Red Cross has launched a massive response to this disaster and depends on financial donations to be able to provide disaster relief immediately. Help people affected by Hurricane Florence by donating to the Buddhist Faith Fellowship special fundraiser campaign.
