3. Team Rubicon – “In anticipation of Hurricane Florence, many have been asking whether Team Rubicon (TR) is in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. The answer is yes; we’re always there. As of today, we have 3,727 volunteers in the Carolinas alone. Many of these members will raise their hand to support the effort, and many already have. Wherever we respond, it is the local knowledge and pre-existing relationships with emergency managers, government agencies, and communities that set us up for success. Groundwork at the local level starts well before a disaster strikes. So does training. Team Rubicon has delivered over 155,000 hours of training both online and in-person to TR volunteers this year so far. Add to that: their experience responding to 67 disasters already in 2018.” DONATE HERE.

4. The Louisiana Cajun Navy – “We don’t wait for the help, We are the help! We the people of Louisiana refuse to stand by and wait for help in the wake of disasters in our state and the country. We rise up to unite and help rescue our neighbors! Our mission is to help the people who can’t get help, not only in the wake of disaster, but in everyday life.” DONATE HERE.
