Disaster Recovery Program
After Hurricane Florence hit Eastern NC on September 14, 2018, The Green Chair Project spent the next two years providing support to our partner agencies who are assisting hurricane survivors as they recover and rebuild from the devastating effects of the storm. Many Eastern North Carolinians lost everything, and returned from evacuation to find their homes structurally damaged and full of mold.
State leaders and our relief agency partners asked us to collaborate with them to help serve the 7,000+ households that experienced complete destruction. Because no local options existed for whole-household furnishing replacement, The Green Chair delivered assistance to over 600 households in Eastern NC.
The Green Chair Project has been honored to work with the State of North Carolina to provide furnishings and essentials assistance to those in need of aid; and remains prepared to serve should the need arise in the future.
