As Hurricane Florence made her way out of North Carolina, catastrophic flooding and deadly flash flooding has resulted in tremendous damage across the state, especially in Eastern Carolina. The NCRSP/NCAE family continues to pray for the safety of our communities, our members, and our students. Please follow the directions and advice of emergency personnel as they respond to this disaster. As the storm begins to subside, we want to start to provide information about resources available to members. If you would like to help now, the NC Foundation for Public School Children — NCAE’s charitable arm — is taking monetary donations. YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE HERE NOW.

Also, NEA Member Benefits and its business partners stand ready to assist by providing resources to affected members and affiliates, and special accommodations to NEA member-participants in NEA MB programs.

A specially designed Disaster Relief Page (DRP) from NEA at provides details about the resources and accommodations available to affected members.

We will be reaching out to all members in the days following the storm via Text to check in.

Please be safe. We are #InThisTogether.
