Hurricane Florence Relief


Now that the storm has passed, many local organizations are working to help our neighbors, near and far, with disaster relief and cleanup.

Love Out Loud is in communication with the City of Winston-Salem and other organizations about how residents can help with response efforts as they develop. Check this page often as updates on how you can help will be posted immediately as they become available.

How can I help?

There are two main areas you can help with Hurricane Florence Recovery.

Current Evacuee Care

Currently the LJVM Coliseum has over 300 evacuees at staying in a Red Cross emergency shelter. On September 26th, the shelter will close. Many evacuees are struggling to find the means to return home. Love Out Loud is working with the Red Cross to identify and meet transportation and other immediate needs for these evacuees. Click Here and choose DISASTER RELIEF to donate to help meet these needs.
