J. Cole’s hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was one of the many communities devastated by Hurricane Florence. And now that the storm has dissipated, the rapper’s Dreamville Foundation has launched an ambitious initiative to assist in Fayetteville’s recovery.

The nonprofit announced their efforts via social media on Thursday:

According to the foundation’s website, donated funds will go toward “hot food stations placed throughout the city, temporary housing options for families, and stocking of food pantries/shelters,” as well as local charities that provide services to Fayetteville residents.

You can learn more about the initiative, including how to donate, at the Dreamville Foundation website.

 Cole’s inaugural Dreamville Festival was scheduled to take place Sept. 15 in Raleigh, North Carolina; however, the event was canceled due to severe weather conditions.
