It's with a heavy heart we look upon the destruction that hurricane
Matthew has cuased. Not only has this hurricane effected people in the
U.S. It's also devastated families and communities in the Caribbean
states. Early reports from Haiti are coming in with an unbelieveable 300
confirmed deaths with an estimated 500 more deaths, but it's still
unclear and will be for some time until the debris has been cleared and
relief efforts have begun. Aside from all of the tragedies both in America
and the Caribbean states, due to all of the flooding, much of the east
coasts infastructure has been destroyed. Roads along the coast line are
washing away because of the high tides. Trees have been knocked down,
city blocks are being flooded which is blocking roads and making it difficult
for citizens to recieve the resources that are necessary for survival.
Roads, builings, and homes are being reduced to rubble that surely cannot
and will not be rebuilt for sometime. Even if people have been lucky enough
to avoid death their personal belongings and homes have been destroyed.
As we've all seen from other tragedies in the past such as hurricane
Katrina, the city of New Orleans is still struggling to rebuild. These
communities that were hurt by hurricane Matthew will be in a rebuilding
process for some time, so that begs the question... what can we do to help?
You know that can of peaches or cream of mushroom soup that have been sitting
in your pantry for a little while that you havent even thought of eating?
Well instead of letting it just sit there, this is your chance to do something
great for citizens of the world who were hurt by this hurricane.Donate
canned goods to help people who will be going hungry. We hope that you
can find it in your heart to donate to one of the many foundations helping
these people. Every dollar or can of soup can help someone in need. Even
if you don't have the ability to donate money or food to these causes,
just spreading the word can make a big difference!
