Post-tornadoes. How to help.

April 17, 2011

If you live in the Raleigh-Durham area, you are well aware of the destructive tornadic storm that swept through NC yesterday.  Wow. 

I’m incredibly grateful my family and home escaped unharmed, many living just a few blocks from me weren’t so lucky.  If you’ve been wondering how you can help those affected, WRAL is reporting the following.

People can donate to the Red Cross by calling 1-800-733-2767 or giving online.

Wake County and the City of Raleigh are organizing people for future volunteer efforts. Interested people can call either the Wake County Emergency Operations Center at 919-856-7044 or  send an e-mail to Raleigh Assistant City Manager Dan Howe via

The county is also collecting storm debris to aid in clean-up efforts at various sites in the area.

International relief organization Samaritan’s Purse is dispatching three disaster relief units…to the eastern part of the state. The emergency teams are based in North Wilkesboro in Wilkes County…  They are seeking additional volunteers to assist with relief efforts. Visit their website to volunteer or make a donation.

Lastly, if you need help finding vendors or other resources to assist in repair, clean-up, or emergency efforts (whether for yourself or others), please don’t hesitate to let us know.
