Three of the NBA's best North Carolina-raised stars are teaming up to help relief efforts back home following the devastation of Hurricane Florence.
Wizards guard John Wall has collaborated with Warriors guard Stephen Curry and Rockets guard Chris Paul to field donations through social media in an initiative aptly called 'Assist for Hurricane Florence.'
The trio has joined forces on Twitter and Instagram to get the donation link out there:
Please join myself, @CP3 and @JohnWall supporting our home state of North Carolina and the surrounding area in #HurricaneFlorence recovery efforts! A lot of work to do and any amount helps those in the area get back on their feet quickly. https://t.co/RRdmxWFiJu— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) September 20, 2018

Wall, who is originally from Raleigh, also did his part to warn residents before the storm hit land to prepare for its impact.

As #HurricaneFlorence approaches please take the necessary precautions to prepare for the storm. Please remember to check on elderly family, friends and neighbors to make sure they are also prepared. My prayers are with my home state of #NorthCarolina as well as the other areas that will be impacted by the storm.
As with other big storms, the rebuild of communities affected by Hurricane Florence will likely take years. As of Friday morning, the three All-Star guards had raised over $50,000.
Unfortunately, the hometowns and states of Wizards players have been rattled by hurricanes in recent offseasons. Last summer, they had three players from Houston, Texas who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Then-Wizards guard Sheldon Mac was in Houston when the hurricane hit and was staying in a neighborhood that flooded. Wall and teammate Bradley Beal organized fundraising for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts as well.
