POST;HURRICANE HELP Ë F ollowing the damage and ;ooding caused by Hurricane Florence in September, SHRM’s
North Carolina State Council
collected monetary donations for
disaster-relief organizations assisting victims. HR Florida, a neighboring SHRM state council, made
a generous contribution, said North
Carolina State Council President
Larry S. Valenti, SHRM-SCP.
The NC Coastal SHRM chapter
in Greenville organized a food and
clothing drive for those most a;ected
by the storm.
The Category 1 hurricane made
landfall Sept. 14, resulting in 51
storm-related deaths in three states.
Members of the Lower Cape Fear
Human Resource Association in
Wilmington experienced some of the
worst damage. Mandatory evacua-
tions and ;ooding left some business-
es with just 15 percent to 20 percent
of their usual workforce.
Some Wilmington employers paid
workers for their regularly scheduled
hours even when they were unable to
report to work, Valenti said. One em-
ployer secured a food truck to provide
hot meals for those who could get to
work but didn’t have power at home.
