Red Cross Partners with Green Chair Project, Catholic Charities

In partnership with the American Red Cross and Catholic Charities, the Green Chair project will hold a furniture drive for families affected by the recent flooding in Chapel Hill.

On Sunday June 30, flash floods ravaged more than 160 homes in Orange County. Finally, those families are beginning to put their lives back together, and furniture donations through the Green Chair Project will help them replace the furnishings that they have lost and make their houses feel like home again.

On Friday, July 12, Green Chair project will be serving the first of the families affected by flooding in Chapel Hill from their office in Raleigh.
