Activity Update: January 2016

 In Disaster Relief

The Screven Association/Summerville Baptist Church chainsaw team assisted a homeowner on John’s Island on Jan. 13. The team, led by unit leader Ron McGuire, had worked on John’s Island after the tornado in September, and was asked by the county to return for this additional job. This team was also very active doing mud-out work in the low country after the floods.

A feeding team of 5 people from Shady Grove Baptist Church in the Saluda Association, led by Mrs. Carolyn Tribble, served in Arnold, Missouri (on the outskirts of St. Louis) on Jan. 15-21. They did the meal planning, grocery shopping, preparation, serving, and kitchen clean-up for teams from New Mexico, Missouri, and Nebraska that were doing flood recovery (mud-out) work.

Thirty homeowners have been assisted in the past month by teams working in the RebuildSC projects in Columbia and the Hemingway area. See RebuildSC for additional information.
