September 7, 2017 | Hurricane Irma

Press Release:

For immediate release.

ASHEVILLE|September 7th, 2017

Hurricane Irma is expected to make landfall in the State of Florida with a significant impact expected. Hurricane Irma is projected to bring tropical force storm conditions well into Upstate South Carolina, the Tennessee Valley and Western North Carolina. Hearts With Hands continues to support relief efforts in Texas from Hurricane Harvey, and are now preparing advance teams and supplies to respond to the threat of Irma. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of supplies have been loaded to tractor trailer and are in staging mode as the storm makes landfall over the weekend.

Filed assessment teams will be evaluating where Irma efforts will be focused after landfall, with a focus on Florida, as it is projected to receive the hardest hit at time of print. Hundreds of volunteers have logged countless hours, packing “Boxes of Hope©” ready to feed those who are hungry and hurting. Hearts With Hands is also making supplies ready on stand-by, for our home communities in the event that Irma brings major impact to the Western North Carolina region. We are prepared, ready and available to respond where we are needed.

Field service teams will continue to support efforts in Texas with distribution of supplies and recovery efforts. The devastation in Texas is widespread, and the need is still great in the Lone Star State. Please continue to pray for our leadership teams, as well as the volunteers, truck drivers and support staff as we help those in need. When the storm comes, we will be your hands, supported, from your heart.

God Bless, and please, be in prayer for all in the path of the storm, and those already hurting.

In His Service,

Hearts With Hands

Good afternoon from Green Sea, SC.

FAIR BLUFF, October 15, 2016-Field Service Teams are just now returning from a long day of distribution and relief efforts in North and South Carolina. Multiple communities in both states received aid from Hearts With Hands, and it continues by your support. One team, located at a distribution center in Fair Bluff, NC received a visit from North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory while delivering aid. The Governor was gracious to stop by and shake the hands of the volunteers and Field Service Team that was on site. Governor McCrory vowed continued support and relief efforts for the victims and shared that he was praying for all who have been affected.

We covet your continued prayers and support, as we provide the best level of care and support to the affected communities.
