DonorsChoose.org has created a recovery fund to help teachers at impacted schools create projects for the disaster recovery materials they need in the coming weeks. Every dollar donated at DonorsChoose.org/Hurricane-Florence will be used to fund a classroom project in a school affected by Florence.
Reporting Damaged Schools
After the storm, if you know of a public school that has sustained severe damage, please submit a report to our team.
We've confirmed early reports of damage at the following schools, and will continue to update as we receive new information:

We are temporarily holding orders for locations that have declared a state of emergency. We'll begin sending orders again as soon as we see the course the storm takes and we've verified that materials can be delivered.
Current ordering holds (all schools in the following states):
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- West Virginia
My classroom was damaged by the storm. How can I get support?
You can create a project for the supplies you need to rebuild your classroom (if you don’t yet have an account on DonorsChoose.org, get started here). It helps to describe within your project the impact of the hurricane at your school. As we receive support from our community through the recovery page, we'll be prioritizing supporting projects in schools that have sustained damage from the storm.
