The Dreamville Foundation, a nonprofit founded by rapper J. Cole, is providing aid for those affected by Hurricane Florence in his hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina.

"Food stations placed throughout the city, temporary housing options for families, and stocking of food pantries/shelters" are among the services listed on the Dreamville Foundation's website. "As well as supporting other local nonprofits who help provide services for the people in Fayetteville."

Founded in 2011, the organization's aim is to provide urban youth with the tools they need to achieve their dreams. Some of Dreamville Foundation's events include a Young Men's Book Club, community dinners, back-to-school supply giveaways, panels and many other services. 

With a record-breaking 30 inches of rainfall, Hurricane Florence has caused about 900,000 power outages across the state, and as of Saturday, more than 19,000 people have relocated to shelters. 

The Dreamville Foundation is accepting donations starting from as little as $10 to help their Hurricane relief efforts.
