Hurricane Florence Update: 11/10/2018
Thank you for Praying, Giving and Going! As NC Baptists you have been part of meeting many needs in Jesus’ name. Here are a few of the ways:
At one time, we had 10 large kitchens providing food to Florence survivors at 10 different locations. A total of 1,057,623 HOT meals were prepared and served from these 10 kitchens.
We have a total of 14 sites that have recovery operations working out of them. We are doing chainsaw, mud-outs, tear-outs, shockwave/sanitation and putting tarps on roofs. So far, over 3800 recovery jobs have been completed. More than 2000 jobs are still open and we need lots of tear out volunteers/teams. You do not needed to be trained to help! We are so thankful for those who have come to help us! You can sign up to help at https://baptistsonmission.org/Mission-Projects/By-Mission-Type/Disaster-Relief/Hurricane-Florence
Long Term Response
This disaster is so big that it will require a long term rebuild response to help get many people back in their homes. We are setting up three different rebuild center sites where we can house and feed many volunteers who will be working on homes. This long term response that will take 2-3 years and require thousands of volunteers to help get many people back in their homes.
There are several good Florence videos that you can show at your church. They are at https://vimeo.com/293615975 and at https://vimeo.com/295448948 . There is also information on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ncmissions
If you can donate to Hurricane Florence efforts, we have set up a Florence reserve and 100% of what you give will be used in Hurricane Florence efforts. Make your check payable to : NCBM, PO Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512. Designate-Hurricane Florence. These funds will be used for housing and feeding volunteers as well as providing management of projects and needed building materials. 100% of these funds will be used to provide for the immediate and long term response to Florence. We plan to publicly acknowledge and thank all churches who make these efforts possible.
Thank you for Praying, Giving and Going!
