It can be difficult to have a reference for how to be part of our response efforts beyond donating money or volunteering in the field. And while those are two obvious and much-needed ways of belonging to our NECHAMA Community, there are also many other ways of giving. Dionne and her husband Mikal are giving in a way that is possible for them, which is to open their home in Atlanta, GA to our Operations Team on our way to the Carolinas.
By providing us with a place to stay for a couple nights, they help us cut down on the cost of housing our team that we would have otherwise had to spend on a hotel or Airbnb. Not only does this further our donated dollars, but also gives Dionne and Mikal the opportunity to participate in our Hurricane Florence response.
