Thousands of families have lost their homes and the region is in need of help. Below are businesses and foundations with links to ways that you can donate and support the people who have been affected by these floods.

Appalachians for Appalachia
In their own words, "We harness the power of community through art, science, research and advocacy
To bring about the real change that is possible when diversity of thought is grounded in truth.
We honor the champions who paved our way
By bringing the next generation of Appalachians a space to center justice, equity, resilience and sustainability in our region."
