As a part of our mission to be a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of disaster, we have found ways to expand our disaster recovery and relief efforts to help communities with COVID-19 response by donating personal protective equipment to hospitals and volunteering at COVID-19 vaccination centers.
Al Miller, Director of Disaster Ministries, and Ann Huffman, Conference Disaster Response Coordinator, have worked with health care providers to provide non-medical volunteers for vaccination clinics in Cumberland County and Johnston County.

In February, Disaster Ministries and our Early Response Team members volunteered with Cape Fear Valley Health at a two-day community clinic at E.E. Smith High School. The non-medical volunteers assisted with registrations and directing traffic. Many of the volunteers returned to help at the following community clinic in February and throughout March.

Thank you to all of the volunteers and health care providers who have donated their time to help local communities.
