The heavy job of cleaning out the mess after flooding can be overwhelming both physically and emotionally.
"We want to help lighten the load for people who have already been through so much with Hurricane Florence," said Bob Laarman, director for World Renew Disaster Response Services (DRS). "We need volunteers to help clean-out homes and share God's love with survivors as they do so."
Many people will be able to gut out their homes on their own, but many could use a helping hand. Can you help?
Photos, couches, clothing, flooring, and drywall sadly line streets across North Carolina. Survivors of Hurricane Florence are forced to throw out most of their belongings because several feet of flood water filled their homes. The water sat for days, even weeks, ruining the inside of their homes and all belongings.
If you can volunteer for a week or two between October 12 through the end of November, please click here to submit your availability or contact Chris Gibson at 800-848-5818 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us in praying for comfort and direction for those whose lives have been turned upside down after Florence and for volunteers to come forward to help clean-up.
Consider a donation of any amount to support not only clean-up but home reconstruction in the months and years ahead.
Take a church offering for the Florence response. Bulletin inserts, a PPT slide, and sample announcement are available at worldrenew.net/Florence
