NC Baptist Men are coordinating relief efforts immediately. All of our disaster relief units and volunteers are on alert and we are waiting to be assigned. Once the water comes down, we think that we will be assigned pretty quickly. We are sending a search and rescue team to Texas/Louisiana today. There is information on how to pray, give and go on our website (you can sign up here). We will be using trained and untrained volunteers.
We are collecting some non-perishable items (hygiene kits, first aid kits, diapers/formula) and you can see that information at http://baptistsonmission.org/ missions/by-type/disaster- relief/hurricane-harvey/in- kind . We are not accepting water, bleach or clothing.
We believe that we will be sending volunteers to Texas for many weeks and months to come.
