Ready to Help
Hurricane Dorian made landfall September 6 at Cape Hatteras in northeast North Carolina as a Category 1 storm, following a destructive journey that started in late August. Local Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) teams are providing help and hope where it’s needed most, including trained chainsaw and mud-out units, as well as portable kitchens capable of providing hot meals to storm victims.
During a major crisis response, we work in coordination with national and local partners, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, state emergency management teams and other relief organizations to maximize opportunities to help. Send Relief, the compassion ministry of NAMB, supports SBDR, packing supplies to help with their onsite relief efforts.
Pray for all of those affected and for all those who are helping in the aftermath. Know that when you give, your money goes directly to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams.

Being ready for a natural disaster can make all the difference. FEMA has resources available to help you make the necessary preparations in advance of a storm.
