Sandy Nash began volunteering for the Disaster Call Center after Hurricane Matthew hit North Carolina in 2016. Since the age of 12, she has volunteered for the Red Cross, Leukemia Society, and local food banks. Now, Sandy’s generous heart has touched the lives of disaster survivors who have reached out for assistance with NCC Disaster Ministries.
Sandy travels 84 miles a day to volunteer Monday through Friday in the Call Center. Volunteering has provided Sandy the opportunity to use her gifts to help people in need. She believes the “Lord gives us the ability” to volunteer and “everyone can serve in their own ways.”
Volunteers in the Call Center are the voice of hope for disaster survivors. Sandy values the opportunity to be a healing voice and build relationships with the people who call for assistance. Sandy is determined to be a voice of hope for those still waiting for home repairs.
The need for help has grown since Hurricane Florence and so has the need for volunteers. Volunteers, like Sandy, allow Disaster Ministries to help disaster survivors rebuild their homes and lives. Disaster Ministries appreciates all of the volunteers that have helped 847 people return home.
Thank you Sandy for your efforts to help the people of Eastern North Carolina return home!
