Airbnb’s in Macon offer free place to stay for evacuees
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The room/home renting service, Airbnb, is offering assistance to Hurricane Dorian evacuees.
Airbnb hosts can sign up to be a part of the open homes program. The program helps those undergoing a crisis such as a hurricane.
Host Nancy Williams says she lived in Savannah during a hurricane in the past. She understands what evacuees are going through.
“But I thought at that time, what do you do if you don’t have family to go to?” Williams said. “And when Airbnb offered that opportunity to be a host for evacuees and I thought, ‘yeah this is something I really want to do?”
