Hurricane Florence Relief and Recovery Fund of Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. has generously supported Disaster Ministries in Cumberland County. Disaster Ministries has been awarded several grants totaling over $90,000 that have supplied safety equipment, materials for home repairs, and staff. There have been multiple homeowners in Cumberland County that have been able to repair their homes due to the help of the Hurricane Florence Relief and Recovery Fund of Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc.
Employees at the North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church volunteered in Fayetteville to help a homeowner remove furniture, flooring, baseboards, doors, and crown molding. Salvageable items were sorted from those that were completely damaged. Within an hour, the storage bin provided by the Hurricane Florence Relief and Recovery Fund of Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. was almost completely full of debris and memories that could not be saved.
The volunteers continued to fill the bin throughout the rest of the day. The homeowner was very thankful for the help of the volunteers. This volunteer team marked the beginning of the homeowner’s journey to return home.
Disaster Ministries is grateful for the volunteers and partners who have helped us repair homes for those in need. Thank you to the Hurricane Florence Relief and Recovery Fund of the Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. for supporting Disaster Ministries’ recovery projects in Cumberland County.
