PERRY— Florida Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers are set up and ready to start feeding operations out of First Baptist Church in Perry following Hurricane Idalia’s destructive path through the area left many without power and with damage to their homes.
First Baptist Church in Perry, located at 102 N. Center St., Perry, FL 32347, is the designated FLDR command center for relief operations. The church suffered minor roof damage that is not expected to lead to water damage.
Steven Ruff, First Baptist pastor and FLDR chaplain, said, “it is important for the church to provide a sense of hope and relief in the community when tragedies like these take away a sense of peace and comfort. No better way to serve our community in times like these than have teams like FLDR come in Christ’s name and help put together what the storm took away.”
