Hurricane Matthew Response Update
Virginia Baptist Disaster Response volunteers are currently working in Rocky Mount, NC, and Horry County, SC, at the request of our Baptist partners in those states. Our two kitchens will move today to Kinston, NC, and Greenville, NC. Through feeding, chain saw and flood recovery, showers, and communications, our volunteers are helping residents begin the rebuilding process following the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew.
Trained mass-feeding volunteers are needed to continue operating the kitchens for at least the next 10 days, and recovery volunteers will continue to be mobilized in the coming weeks. Follow BGAV.org/Hurricane-Matthew for the latest.
We continue to stay in close contact with our partners in Haiti and anticipate long-term support being offered to support their rebuilding and development efforts. The Source of Light Center, supported by Virginia Baptists, weathered the storm well, and the kids and staff are doing well now.
