Sept. 18, 2019. The following information is from the Ocracoke Relief Team about how people can help Ocracoke post-Hurricane Dorian.
Further updated Oct. 16, 2019. 

At this point, volunteers wishing to come to Ocracoke to help rebuild are asked to do so via the United Methodist Church Regional Disaster Response Center. Please email Twig Rollins, the UMCOR coordinator on Ocracoke about this at twig@nccumc.org.

Ocracoke is still in need of funds to help with rebuilding since Individual Assistance through FEMA was denied.  The Outer Banks Community Foundation is accepting donations for Ocracoke Disaster Relief at https://www.obcf.org/donate-now/disaster-relief-fund-donate/

If you have specific questions, unique offers of aid, or questions about donating supplies, please contact ocracokedisasterrelief@gmail.com.

Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to us when we need it most. Our community appreciates it more than words can express.

–Ocracoke Disaster Relief Team

  1. Peter, is there any member of Congress or the Senate who needs a “what’s up? “ phone call or email? I have heard that FEMA has not yet shown up on the island because there needs to be a disaster declaration??? Can you please publish names and phone numbers of decision makers (road blockers) who need to be called or written to or both? Nobody should have to sleep in a moldy or bleachy home while they are fixing it. FEMA SHOULD BRING THEM TRAILERS, and hook them up. They should also be giving hazard mitigation grants so everyone can raise their homes above the flood line. They have a lot of resources that Ocracoke needs.
