Port City Proud is a Wrightsville Beach based group of construction and building professionals who are coming together to help our friends and neighbors in their time of need. We’ve all seen the destruction caused by the fallen trees and rising flood waters of Hurricane Florence, and these folks were ready to help.
Over the past week, we’ve been working hard to clear trees and debris so our neighbors can have access to their homes and start the recovery process. But this work has only just begun and thousands of our neighbors still need our help, which we’re ready and willing to give. If you have downed trees on your property, we’re ready to come help.
We’ll be asking for donations, 100 percent of which will go back to our neighbors who are in need. Our relief efforts will be focused on hurricane victims in New Hanover, Pender, Duplin and Sampson counties. We’ll be working with Hope From Helen, a 501 (c)(3) charity which has earned a reputation for helping neighbors in need. With more than a decade of experience in raising funds to help people, Hope from Helen is the perfect organization for us to partner with. All donations will go directly to people who have been impacted by Hurricane Florence.
We are a non-denominational organization made up of people anxious to help people of all kinds. We’re looking for help of all kinds.
If you have money to donate, it will go directly towards those in needs. If you’re ready to volunteer, we can find a way for you to help. Assistance with debris removal is critical, but there are many ways that you can help with our mission.
What started as a group of four people cutting down and removing trees has already added more than two dozen volunteers.
Everyone knows someone who is hurting from the destruction caused by this terrible storm, but not everyone knows what they can do to help. Now’s your chance to be part of our movement and make a real difference in your community.
Come be a part of Port City Proud!
