North Carolina confronted a spiraling statewide crisis on Sunday as Tropical Depression Florence slowly ravaged the South, flooding cities, sending thousands into shelters and endangering communities along the coastline. What started with a colossal Cat. 4 Hurricane threat devestated us with flooding and continuous rain. The storm has killed at least 17 people in the United States so far. The deaths include a mother and child who died after a tree fell on their home in Wilmington. Areas like Jacksonville, New Bern, Hampstead and Wilmington are still underwater. Hog farms in our area have contaminated our water leaving us with no clean water, no power and limited cell phone service. Most of our area is underwater.
This area hosts Camp LeJuene Marine Corps base as well as home to thousands of Marine Corps veterans. The Raider Project is a non-profit
program of GallantFew located in Holly Ridge North Carolina devoted to assisting veterans and their families in their transition out of the military.
Victims of Hurricane Harvey from Cannon Fitness and Performance in Houston Texas have sent supplies to assist with the clean up of our community. The Raider Project, Darby Project and GallantFew with a team of 30 Combat Veterans will assist the community with clean up, supply distrubition, and humanitarian efforts to restore and rebuild our area. With your help we can make sure that the NO veterans are left homeless as victims of this tragedy in our community.
