Texas DR Calls for Chainsaw, Mud-out Help
As the response to Hurricane Harvey’s damage in Texas continues, Disaster Relief (DR) leaders there recently asked for both chainsaw and mud-out units from other states to assist them. They need units to serve between Nov. 27 and the end of 2017.
SC Unit Leaders are urged to contact team members to determine dates they are available. Volunteers, contact your unit leader, or contact the state office if you are not connected to a unit.
Texas has strong Baptist Disaster Relief networks and deep DR roots, but the extent of this disaster is so widespread that assistance continues to be needed from other states.
South Carolina DR sent a series of feeding teams to Texas in September, and a series of shower/laundry teams in October/November to assist in the Hurricane Harvey response. Additionally, four child care volunteers served in August/September, and one mud-out unit has been to Texas twice in the past three months.
Will you do your part to serve our Lord by serving others, being the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus to those whose lives were turned upside down by this disaster?
