Our thoughts are with the communities affected by Hurricane Florence, which has ravaged communities in the Carolinas and Virginia with high winds, catastrophic flooding, and widespread power outages. Members of the National Education Association are coming together to help educators and their families affected by Hurricane Florence. NEA, NEA Member Benefits, and NEA State Affiliates affected by Florence have combined fundraising efforts to assist members affected by the hurricane.
Please visit the NEA Hurricane Resources & Relief page where you can contribute to the disaster-relief fund for NEA members. You can also check the NEA Member Benefits website for more information on how to contribute to recovery efforts. On the Hurricane Resources & Relief page you will also find information about how to talk with students about hurricanes and assist them with any trauma they may be experiencing.
