UNC Disaster Relief Efforts

When a natural disaster strikes North Carolina, students, faculty and staff at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill organize to provide assistance to those in need. These efforts have included:

State of North Carolina Disaster Relief Efforts

  • North Carolina Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster – North Carolina asks that volunteers do not self-deploy, as unexpected arrivals in affected communities creates an additional burden for first responders. Volunteer registration for hurricane relief can be completed through the NC VOAD.
  • Anyone interested in volunteering can sign up through the State’s volunteer website. Volunteers can indicate if they are interested in volunteering time, supplies, donations or resources to assist communities impacted by hurricanes.

Other Ways to Help

  • United Way – 100% of individual donations given to these disaster recovery funds will be distributed to the affected areas.
  • Crisis Cleanup – A free, award-winning, ready-to-use, open source application that connects disaster recovery organizations with the people who need help.
  • Team Rubicon Disaster Response – Donate or volunteer with Team Rubicon in their efforts to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
