Ready to Help
Hurricane Florence made landfall in North Carolina on September 14, dumping more than 30 inches of rain in some regions and causing more than 30 storm-related deaths. Residents are coping with flooding, structural damage and power outages. They need practical help and enduring hope.
Even before the hurricane hit, Southern Baptists were preparing to provide that help and hope. During major crisis responses, NAMB works closely with national and local partners, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, state emergency management teams and other volunteer organizations like American Red Cross and The Salvation Army to coordinate an effective response.
Feeding, chainsaw and mud-out units are already set up in multiple locations in the Carolinas, providing thousands of hot meals, essential supplies and trained volunteers to impacted communities.
Pray for the ongoing efforts. This will be a long-term response. When you give, you are directly resourcing state Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams.
