From the Ocracoke Observer
OCRACOKE — Hurricane Dorian relief workers here have offered new information on how people can help.
The Ocracoke Relief Team said it had seen an overwhelming response from individuals wanting to help rebuild the community. Because of the massive response, the team has turned to four experienced organizations with the resources to coordinate large volunteer forces.
If you would like to come to the island as a volunteer, visit any of the following:
- Samaritan’s Purse
- Christian Aid Ministry
- North Carolina Baptists on Mission
- North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church Disaster Ministries, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to volunteer with these organizations, consider donating to the Outer Banks Community Foundation and indicate you would like your funds allocated to Ocracoke Disaster Relief.
If you have specific questions, unique offers of aid, or questions about donating supplies, contact the relief team at ocracokedisasterrelief@gmail.
“Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to us when we need it most, our community appreciates it more than words can express,” the Ocracoke Relief Team said.
Also, Hyde County officials announced that a small business recovery team plans to present available tools and resources and meet with individual business owners at 1 p.m. Friday at the Community Center. Learn more.
