The Carolinas Associated General Contractors (CAGC) has invited members to support and lead in the Hurricane Florence recovery effort.

“As one Carolina, we are both saddened and at a loss by the devastation Hurricane Florence has left behind,” CAGC said in a statement. “In North Carolina alone, enough rain was dumped to cover the state of Texas with four inches of water.

“We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are safe and sound – and that all your businesses and livelihoods get up and running again quickly in North and South Carolina

‘As an organization supporting the improvement of the quality of life in the Carolinas, we want to assist our members, as well as the construction industry, as we all work together to rebuild and overcome this damage that no doubt will run into the billions of dollars.

“At a time like this, it is good to see everybody pulling together as one Carolina,” CAAG board chair Paul Mashburn said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with you all,” CAGC said.
