Hurricane Florence may have passed through the Carolinas, but immense flooding, road closures, and power outages continue to make the situation dangerous for the residents of the region. That's where Bethenny Frankel comes in.
The Real Housewives of New York City philanthropist is continuing her disaster relief efforts through her B Strong charity, which began last year when Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria (clip above) devastated Houston, Texas and Puerto Rico, respectively, working with her team on the ground in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Wednesday. Bethenny chartered a plane and brought pet supplies, food, hygiene products, toys, medical supplies, solar lights, and cash cards to people in the area, she shared on Instagram.
Bethenny documented her visit to shelters, as well as the devastation to the area due to the massive amount of rainfall the storm brought.

Her daughter, Bryn, has even been contributing to the relief effort. Bryn and her classmates distributed money and books to those in need, Bethenny said in her Instagram Story. Bryn can also be seen carrying boxes to help load the plane in a video in Bethenny's Instagram Story. "Everybody's helping out," Bethenny said in the clip.
Celebrities such as Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, Christina Aguilera, Lea Michele, and Kelly Ripa have also shown their support for the cause. Together they have raised about $125,000 for hurricane relief, Bethenny recently told PEOPLE.
Bethenny opened up about her work in Houston and Puerto Rico during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last year. Find out more, below.
