Here is the latest update as of Sunday, Aug. 22 for our NC Baptists on Mission Disaster Relief Tropical Storm Fred response:
FBC Canton - we continue to partner with FBC Canton to assist in cooking and serving meals to a local soup kitchen. We are also preparing and serving meals to our volunteers who come to serve at our recovery site. We are also providing a shower/laundry unit for volunteers as well as washing clothes for the community. A water tanker filled with potable water is in place to serve the community with their water needs. We have admin and logistics volunteers helping manage the site.
Crestview Baptist Church - We have set up a Disaster Recovery Operations Center at Crestview Baptist in Canton. This is the base site for all recovery work and will be the main lodging for volunteers serving in mud-outs and tear-outs. We have a shower/laundry unit for volunteers to use and also a larger laundry unit to minister to the larger community. Admin volunteers are also assisting at this site.
We will begin an additional feeding operation on Wednesday, Aug. 25. The location is being determined now. Those certified in feeding need to communicate your willingness to serve to your blue hat.
