What happens when you need to evacuate, but don’t have a car? Public transit steps in, but often you can take only what you can carry, and no pets. More than 400,000 people without cars are in the path of Hurricane Florence, many of them low-income. Just being evacuated can get expensive, if you need to pay for lodging, extra medicine and have special dietary requirements.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
