After Irma: How you can help victims of the storm

Thousands of those in the wake of Irma are dealing with the immediate damage, but recovery efforts could take months. Across the country, many spared from the storm may want to help.

You can donate to the Red Cross by going to its website. This also has the option of donating to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

If you’d like to help in your community, find your local chapter of the Red Cross online and ask what you can do to support its work. Some may not be prepared to accept donations or coordinate volunteer efforts, so check first before taking action.

Help for Brunswick:

First Jerusalem Baptist Church is taking a tractor-trailer full of items to Brunswick residents affected by Tropical Storm Irma.

They are accepting non-perishables, water bottles, paper items, etc. until Friday when the tractor-trailer will head out.

Just drop off supplies at 4370 ACL Blvd from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Statesboro High School relief fundraiser:

Statesboro High School is working to raise $10,000 for hurricane relief in Texas and Florida.

They are selling chicken dinner orders at $10 a piece.

The event is scheduled for September 22, which is also SHS’s homecoming.
