Last October, South Carolina experienced unimaginable flooding in the many parts of the state. Thousands of our neighbors lost everything. South Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers were joined by volunteers from many other states to minister to the families affected by the floods. Everything inside a flooded home was removed – walls, cabinets, carpeting; sometimes homes had to be gutted down to the studs. The SC Baptist Convention then launched RebuildSC to help families return to their homes.
Volunteers are needed immediately and throughout the next year.
Plan a mission trip for your church or just your family. Individuals are welcome, as well. Construction experience is not necessary, and you do NOT have to be Disaster Relief-trained! Just have a willing spirit. Crew leaders can help your team in ministering to one of these families in our state.
SC Baptists have two RebuildSC sites in operation, with housing, meals and shower facilities provided at each site. Site leaders will arrange the jobs, materials, and tools (although you may bring your own tools if you wish). The sites are being run by our DR partners from North Carolina and Georgia at the following locations that were severely impacted by the floods:
We do not have a Rebuild site in Columbia due to good coverage of that area by other denominations and agencies.
