Since Hurricane Florence hit Eastern NC on September 14, 2018, The Green Chair Project has been providing support to our partner agencies who are assisting hurricane survivors as they recover and rebuild from the devastating effects of the storm.
The Green Chair Project has long provided our services when natural disasters have struck our local area. So when Florence hit our state we knew we couldn’t stand by idly. State leaders and our relief agency partners asked us to partner with them to help serve the great need for the 7,000+ households that experienced complete destruction. Where no other local options existed for whole-household furnishing replacement we have provided assistance and will continue as long as the needs remain and resources continue to make it possible.
Thanks to funding from foundations and grants from relief agencies we have been able to fund and set up our disaster recovery assistance program from our Raleigh location.
