Florida Group Sends Help To North Carolina For Hurricane Florence Relief


A church effort from Florida will bring more relief to the Wilmington, N.C., area, starting with a small town called Whiteville.

The team hit the road Tuesday morning from Leesburg. A year ago when Florida was pounded by Hurricane Irma, North Carolina was among the states sending volunteers to help.

Now with eastern North Carolina swamped after Hurricane Florence, a Florida group saw the opportunity to return the favor.
