Hurricane Irene Recovery
The NC Conference continues to have an on-going operation for disaster recovery. Over 27,000 homes were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irene in August 2011. Although we are almost 3 years past the devastating storm, although we have rebuilt or repaired over 650 homes, and although we have provided assistance to over 1000 families, we still have scores who, without insurance and resources to rebuild, remain unable to move back into heavily damaged or destroyed homes.
We continue to have deep need for work teams to do both repair/reconstruction and new construction. The NC Conference disaster recovery call center can place your team in an area where people continue to desperately need your help. We have had over 500 teams respond and we need many, many more. We are deeply grateful for the efforts and gifts of these wondrous servants. We have been staggered by the generosity of those who have responded in such manner. Please join us. Your efforts will make a difference.
We continue to need additional funds for the recovery work. Please also consider reaching out financially by giving to NC Storms Emergency Response – NC Advance #S-00176. 100% of every gift to this Advance will go to storm response. You can give online at: NC Storms Emergency Response
You can also send funds to: NC Conference, P.O. Box 890202, Charlotte, NC 28289-0202. Please be sure to note Advance #S-00176.
