Help People Affected by Hurricane Florence

Posted: Oct 02, 2018

Good afternoon ASSP members,

I’m sure all of you are aware of the approach of Hurricane Florence and its expected impact along the East Coast, especially in the Carolinas. The dangers not only involve devastating winds and flying debris but also torrential rains and widespread flooding. The storm could dump as much as 40 inches of rain on some communities. The result of that is nearly impossible to imagine.

Millions of Americans will be affected by this massive storm over the next few days and far beyond. Our ASSP family in the targeted region includes more than 7,000 members.
