People in Winston-Salem were spared the worst of Hurricane Florence, and now they are doing what they can to help others who weren’t so lucky.
Several organizations volunteered and sponsored the Hurricane Florence Relief drive Saturday. They were collecting essentials like cleaning supplies, water, clothes and other things lost in the flooding.
“We didn’t have major power outages or major flooding. It’s just a great feeling. It’s a blessing and a great feeling to be able to give back, ” said Arnita Miles, one of the organizers.
Among those sponsoring the event were Winston-Salem Minister’s Conference and the WSSU basketball team.
Meanwhile, High Point University presented a check to the American Red Cross for $30,000 to help the relief efforts. The Red Cross says the money will go directly to those who were affected.
