Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest storms to hit the United States in recorded history, devastated areas of the Florida Panhandle to Virginia. Entire towns were decimated. Homes, business and agriculture were damaged or destroyed across four states.

With your help and in partnership with MAP International and Convoy of Hope, we delivered 11,520 ready-to-eat meals and 3,500 disaster health kits to survivors of Hurricane Michael in Florida. We have also provided 720 families with prepackaged meal kits and distributed 1,802 respirator masks that protect against mold for victims as they clean out their damages houses.
