The past two weeks have been some of the hardest I’ve seen Eastern North Carolina faced with in over 20 years living here. As my family and I have worked from county to county helping friends, neighbors, and strangers alike, we’ve found ourselves profoundly devastated by sweeping loss. Families have found themselves stripped of belongings and homes that held precious memories, safety, and security. This is the time when we are called to come together as one to help those in need. My team has worked with the counties in our district to compose a list of the best ways to donate time, manpower, supplies, and funds to each area. As we all heal together, I urge you to help as you can and to reach out as you need. I look forward to helping in and around our district in any capacity I can.

Much of our community already lives in poverty. Today, many have lost everything, have no power, and have no way to get their medications or critical medical supplies.
