Hurricane Ida Relief

Members of our small collective in central North Carolina have been busy since the hurricane hit. We have a supply donation drop-off spot and information about what is needed from our contacts on the ground. After the first week, two of our team, medics from Greensboro, went down to the impacted area to help out. We're also raising money to support our efforts.

Supplies

We have a drop-off location in Hillsborough. Please contact us for the location. We are encouraging people to drop materials off after business hours, between 6:00 and 8:00pm if possible. We may have some very limited ability to pick up larger donations.
