Floridians are ever so mindful of the impacts of Hurricanes. Our hearts go out to those in Louisiana and Texas as they are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. Florida Baptist Disaster Relief along with Southern Baptist Disaster Relief partners across the nation are standing by to respond. What can we do?
Pray for the survivors as they face these difficult days. Pray for the First responders, utility responders, city, county, and state Emergency personnel as they engage and respond. Pray for Texas and Louisiana Disaster Relief leaders and volunteers serve.
You can give below to support the Disaster Relief efforts and provide needed aid.
Hurricane Laura / Louisiana Support Request.
Louisiana Disaster Relief has requested Florida Disaster Relief support their response with 2 Shower/Laundry Units and at least 2 Clean Up Recovery Units. Your DR State Task Force leadership has initiated a call out for logistics support and available Clean Up Recovery teams. SOUTHERN BAPTIST DISASTER RELIEF from multiple states are there offering help, hope, and healing. It is anticipated this will be a lengthy response so the needs will be ongoing.
We have had 44 volunteers to date, including 1 Feeding Team, 3 Shower Teams, 4 Clean Up Recovery Teams, and 2 Chaplains. Teams are still being requested.
Credentialed Volunteers, please contact your local or regional leadership as to your availability and continue to earnestly pray for the survivors, and all those helping with recovery.
Thank you in advance for your desire to be right beside those who need help, hope and healing!
