Our student ministries wrote letters to @samaritanspurse
volunteers thanking them from all of us for their tireless work restoring our community! The work they’ve done has been incredible, but we aren’t done yet! There are still MANY homes and people in need of help, and we need more volunteers to make that happen. Samaritans Purse hosts orientations in Studio 3 in Wilmington at 7:15 am and 12:15 pm every day except Sunday. Come join the work being done! #hurricaneflorence #florencerelief
Could not have gotten any more lucky with the weather this week! Grateful for being given the opportunity to attend a rad comedy show in Asheville + give back to those in need...celebrities willing to donate 100% of proceeds (minus a bo-berry biscuit) to habitat for humanity and Florence relief...and amazing best friends who drop everything mid-week to travel across the state in support of my random impulses #fallfestivities #florencerelief #comedyforacause #azizansari
Join Kristina and Rayneen for this special Kirtan & Flow class tonight (Wednesday, October 17th) at 7pm collecting funds for continued relief efforts for those impacted by Hurricane Florence.
Donations can be made in Cash or Check. 🙏🏼
Donations go directly to help NC Food Bank! 💙
While school was out of session due to Hurricane Florence, numerous @pc3ilm_tsunami
students displayed their heart for serving others by cleaning up our city. Together with their small group leaders, they made a BIG difference.
Are you a middle school student or a parent of one? If so, we hope you join us this Wednesday night at 6:30 PM in the Main Auditorium of the Wilmington Campus for Tsunami. Our high school ministry, Ripple Effect, meets on Sunday nights at 6:30 PM.
The Boutique received some great donations from Isha and her school we believe. We don’t have any information which School put together this great drive for the Florence Relief fund! We would like to thank you and speak with you! If someone has more info please contact the Boutique or DM us here! Thank you for your generosity 💕 #hurricaneflorence #florencerelief #therearegoodpeopleintheworld
While my night has been pretty normal, watching @achefslife
, football, and baking some cookies for work, there are still many people who are not back to normal yet.
One of my errands this afternoon was to go pick up some supplies to make a hygiene kit that my church @pbcraleigh
is collecting for Hurricane Florence victims. While we get up and go to work each day, there are still many people picking up the pieces and who will be feeling the effects for quite some time.
However, ENC is comprised of some strong people. They are resilient and will find their normal again. But they won’t be able to do it alone, and I am excited to go serve these people this upcoming weekend with my friends.
As I sign off for the night, I ask that you do not forget about our friends down east. Kindness goes a long way in our world these days, and there are so many ways we can help and support our neighbors down there. Nothing is too big or too small. All you have to do is google!
Thank y’all for following along today and for all the positive responses. Now to pass it off to @mkroman
for tomorrow! | Photo By: @tapreddy #hurricaneflorence #florencerelief
So proud of our @ravenscroftnc
students for doing their part to help others in need! #florencerelief
Glad to show Nile early how important it is to actively help others! #WeR
It could have been us. Hurricane Florence was an eye-opening scare, and when @lifehousevabeach
made a way to go with #christinaction
to New Bern, I knew I had to join. This weekend, I got to suit up with an amazing team, go under homes, and pull out flooded insulation. The road to restoration has barely begun for many families along the coast - praying for renewed hope and many more hands to help them rebuild. #dirtyjobs #florencerelief #newbernstrong
The week following Hurricane Florence, I was given the gift of hospitality. A dinner out. I was told to order whatever I wanted!...and to simply receive it. A week later, after mudding-out a neighbor’s home, she said “thank you” and expressed how she felt like she should chip in on our dinner or...something! But she was told to simply receive. ✨
Our culture has trained us to be independent and self-sufficient. In the midst of that, hospitality and free gifts are often lost. We forget to give (myself especially), and feel almost bad for accepting gifts given 100% freely. We want to attach strings, feeling the need to pay someone, give something in return, or somehow earn it. “Thank you” never feels good enough. But I’ve realized there’s joy to be had in the giving and in the receiving. I’ve never expected or wanted anything in return from helping with disaster relief. Knowing that and realizing how much it meant to me when someone told me something kind, made me a meal, gifted me with their time and help, has made me want to be a gift to others as well. I want others to know that they’re loved and cared for. 💕
Speaking of free gifts...the greatest one we’ve been given is our sin-debt paid by Jesus. How easy it is for us to feel that we must earn it! That there must be a catch! No wonder it’s hard for any of us to accept His gift with pure joy and simple gratitude when “thank you” doesn’t even feel enough for a gift as simple as a dinner out! Revel in Christ’s goodness today. Recognize the freedom He so *freely* has *given* us from something we don’t deserve, and can *never* earn. Tell Him a simple “thank you.” ❤️
WOW! LOOK AT ALL OF THESE GOOD THINGS WE’VE COLLECTED SO FAR!! Thank you so much to our sweet and generous community who have donated all of this! We so appreciate it, and so will our friends on the east coast! If you haven’t dropped a donation by yet, you still have until tomorrow!

Hi, Cash's human here! 🙋♀️ He's busy organizing volunteers, so I'm taking over today 😂
Sorry for the delay in updating on this, lots happening right now. I will admit the wish list was overwhelming. I grew up in Florida, and have been through several hurricanes, but even knowing what I know about aftermath and what it takes to clean up, I still wasn't prepared for this! So I sorted by priority, what hasn't been purchased yet, added some cat food (naturally) and sent some items. I'll be sending more in a few days.
Some things on the wish list couldn't be shipped to their location, so if you plan on helping them with this be prepared for that. Also, a couple things say they won't be there until the 9th, but I'm hoping to get that expedited.
Here is the link to their page:
All that aside, I wanted to say thank you to everyone that purchased stickers or bandanas. Your support and enthusiasm has been uplifting, and so fun! And the money is going to a fantastic cause. I see some pictures are coming in, I'll start sharing those sporadically over the next couple of days!

You may remember that last September we decided to dedicate our "Casual For A Cause" money, as a coordinated effort between all of our Financial Centers, to help alleviate some of the financial concerns surrounding Hurricane Harvey in Texas. We have decided to do the same for the victims of Hurricane Florence in North Carolina which made landfall very close to home last month. All of our Financial Centers will be contributing to Hurricane Florence relief and we URGE you to JOIN US and help! #PCB #CasualForACause #FlorenceRelief #CapeFearStrong #HurricaneFlorence #HelpNorthCarolina #YourBank
For October, we will be donating our usual $5 or, in lieu of cash, 5 items that can be used in the relief effort. Items such as non-perishable food, household cleaners, personal hygiene products, pet food, or anything fitting a need for a person or family that has been impacted by the storm. Please feel free to bring a donation of money or items to your local Financial Center to be sent down to North Carolina at the end of the month. * We would like everyone to know that no actual cash will be sent. Any cash donated will be used to purchase necessary items and those in turn will be what are sent for the relief effort. *
OUR BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP!! This year we have decided to give back to our community. Beginning October 1st, we will be accepting donations to help relieve our friends who have been affected by Hurricane Florence. Please come by with a donation and receive a little thank you gift certificate in return!! We truly appreciate you all, thanks for keeping us going for so many years! #donatenow #florencerelief #golocal #avlbouchon

We’re in North Carolina distributing food, supplies, and providing free medical services to over 200+ community members impacted by Hurricane Florence. Thank you to the APPNA physicians for partnering with us. Learn how you can help by visiting www.icnarelief.org/florence #hurricaneflorence #florencerelief #voluenteer
Many have asked us how to help with Hurricane relief. As Wilmington continues to recover, the major volunteer need we have has shifted from supply distribution to home restoration. There are many homes in major need of debris removal, mud-outs, and roof tarping. This is how YOU can help!
Our incredible partner, Samaritan's Purse, has made it extremely easy to get involved! They help identify the greatest needs in our area and also train and lead all work projects.
To get involved, you can simply show up at the church Monday-Saturday at 7:15AM or 12:15PM for a one-time volunteer training and then you will be sent out to work! -
If you have any questions about serving, you can check out portcitychurch.org/florence. Let’s get to work!
Still processing last week, also trying to catch up with real life. Here's a Pilatus full of hot food and essential supplies. #operationairdrop
As NC was being devastated by Hurricane Florence, NHRMC employees left their homes and families to work long shifts night after night to ensure that our community had someone to turn to in an emergency. ❤️
Many of them have returned to seriously damaged homes. In some cases, they don’t have a home to return to. The NHRMC Foundation Hurricane Relief Fund distribute funds or supplies to employees who suffered significant property loss during the hurricane and subsequent flooding. ❤️
So far the NHRMC Foundation has raised more than $60,000 and more than 300 PDO hours! Thank you to everyone who has generously donated to help our employees in need. If you are interested in giving please visit: nhrmcfoundation.org #Florence #HurricaneFlorence #FlorenceNC #FlorenceRecovery #FlorenceAftermath #FlorenceRelief

Just came across these sweet memories of my days living in Wilmington, NC. Grateful for all of the kind people I met there, and can only imagine what they're going through during the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. My boyfriend Brent's parents live in New Bern, NC. They came back from vacation last week, to find everything inside their home unsalvageable. My family and friends in Louisiana are all too familiar with starting anew, and know how difficult it can be without the help and support of friends, family and even complete strangers. With a goal of supporting local Wilmington and New Bern residents and businesses, I'll follow up later this week with a list of recommended organizations that will quickly impact those in need. Stay tuned... would love your suggestions as well! #florencerelief #wilmington #newbern
As the rivers rise, major flooding has continued in our surrounding towns like Burgaw. Yesterday we were able to connect with several pastors in the area to figure out how we could partner together. We found out that many of the people in this area were out of food due to low supply and loss of power.
Once again, we saw God at work and the Church on the move as a few important pieces came together. A member of our church contacted us about a warehouse available in Burgaw. As soon as I-40 opened up, Convoy of Hope was able to send truckloads of supplies, not only for Burgaw, but also for the surrounding areas! Now the local churches in town are organizing supplies and publicly distributing supplies to people in need. A special thank you to Pastor Malloy, Pastor Smith, and Pastor Rodger for leading your churches in serving our region!
If you are in the Burgaw area, you can come to the warehouse at 717 HWY 117 South from 10AM-2PM for relief supplies!
My friends, family and school are AMAZING. Before Florence I was hung up on getting through this semester/week/day of school, but times like this make me appreciate the bigger picture. We raised $1400 in addition to the donations!!! So incredibly grateful❤️🙏 All of these donations were taken down to New Bern last weekend. A huge thanks to all who donated #fullheart #florencerelief #ncsucvm #givingback #allthefeels
We received another truck load of supplies today! It was a surprise load all the way from Fairfax, VA! •
Keep spreading the word that we have free supplies for those in need. We will be distributing 9:00-5:00 through Friday or while supplies last. •
If you can volunteer to help distribute or at our work days, sign up at the link in our profile. #collegeacreslovesilm #florencerelief
