Hurricane Relief

Ready to Help

Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) feeding, chainsaw and mud-out units continue to minister in multiple locations in the Carolinas, providing thousands of hot meals, essential supplies and trained volunteers to communities affected by Hurricane Florence.

Category 4 Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10 near Mexico Beach, Fla., and volunteers and equipment are serving affected areas, providing help and hope in tangible ways.

During such crises, 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.

Pray for those volunteers serving now and those who will soon be serving. When you give, you are directly resourcing state Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams who are being the hands and feet of Jesus to hurting people.

Send practical help and the hope of the gospel

When you give to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, you can be confident you are meeting the immediate, significant needs of people in crisis while also investing in long-term gospel influence.
