While current projections indicate the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula may avoid the worst of Hurricane Florence, we also know that the region is likely to experience significant rain and high winds. This may lead to additional flooding, downed trees and power lines, and personal property damage. Above all, we encourage all of our partners – individuals and organizations alike – to heed warnings, get prepared and place your personal safety as the highest priority.
State and local officials have declared states of emergency ahead of the storm’s arrival to boost preparedness efforts and to mobilize emergency managers and response teams so they can respond quickly once the impact of the storm is known. On a personal level, you are encouraged to make your own plans to ride out the storm.
For more details on steps you can take to be ready for Hurricane Florence or a future disaster, please visit www.vaemergency.gov or www.ready.gov.
Many people are compelled to help following a disaster. It is important to ensure that your time and resources are spent in response to actual needs and that they do not hinder response efforts.
How and where to donate:
As with most disasters, there are both immediate and long-term needs in affected communities. National early response and recovery organizations rely on donations to fuel their work and we will share information about what they are doing and how to help.
Similarly, we believe local community foundations are uniquely positioned to understand and identify the specific needs of their service areas, and they partner with trusted nonprofit partners to address and monitor longer-term response efforts over time.
Upon landfall, we will share more detail about efforts to address needs in our area. We will also collect information about response efforts in communities hardest hit by the storm and connect you with their community foundations.

We are here for you. Please call us if you have any questions and visit our website for future updates.
