As of September 5, 2019, the death toll in the Bahamas due to Hurricane Dorian has risen to 23. Thousands are now homeless and in need of help. Entire communities have reportedly been “wiped out.” As Hurricane Dorian continues to travel, we are expected to see more destruction in North Carolina, South Carolina, and the surrounding areas. If you are able to help those that are recovering from the storm and are looking for a way to do so, here are a few organizations that need your help.
