HOW TO HELP SCHOOLS RECOVER FROM HURRICANE FLORENCE

FAST NC is seeking financial donations and new school supplies that we will deliver to schools in affected areas of North Carolina. Donations might include paper, pens, crayons, notebooks, tissues, etc. Please — no flammable items, liquids, or food. North Carolina is a state that comes together when times are tough. Thank you for helping.


For Teachers

You can print these drive cards (pdf, 124kb) to send home with your students, which contain instructions on how parents can get involved. When you receive supplies, please work with your principal or charter school administrator to get them to the central office nearest to your school.

Note that if your district already collected and shipped supplies, another supply drive may not be the best option in your district. Please consider pointing people to where they can give more through a financial donation.
