From Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County:
When disasters occur, we all want to reach out and support those impacted, even outside our local community. We encourage you to get involved with organizations that give communities hope and much needed resources prior to a disaster so that you are trained and ready when the community needs you most. Below you will find information on ways you can help those recently impacted by the most recent flooding in WNC.
