Here’s how we’re helping out. Amazon has deployed more than 20 trucks with more than 400,000 Amazon-donated disaster relief items, including bottles of water, food, supplies for children in shelters, and other essential items for those affected by Hurricane Florence. Additionally, thousands of Amazon customers have donated items to the American Red Cross and Feeding America through their Wish Lists. Our teams across nearly 50 Fulfillment Centers remain on standby and more Amazon inventory is ready to be deployed if needed.

Since the hurricane made landfill, more than 100 employees have volunteered to support the American Red Cross’ virtual emergency call centers.
