Waves For Water Holds Supplies Drive To Rebuild East Coast Surf Community

Several widespread needs are now being addressed by many of the other disaster relief organizations like the Red Cross, but the rebuilding process will require the help of the world’s surf community as well, and Waves For Water will be on the ground connecting with local relief teams and working tirelessly to restore basic needs and goods. To support the missions, Waves For Water has set up a specific fundraising page on its site (wavesforwater.org) for individuals and businesses to contribute.

To follow the progress and learn more about the Waves For Water relief efforts, go to wavesforwater.org.
