Disaster Relief Update from Mike O’Dell – York Baptist Association
We are in full Disaster Response Mode and are waiting on assignments from our SC DR office. The need is HUGE and it will take a few days for the Florida Baptist Convention to get prepared for us so hang tight and make plans for your volunteer groups to be ready next week and after.
- Financial donations are needed now. Please send your Disaster Relief donations to the YBA at P.O. Box 36817, Rock Hill SC 29732. We will use 10% of your donation for the expenses of the YBA DR Units and send the rest to the SC Disaster Relief. 100% of your Disaster Relief Donations will go directly to assisting the victims of these hurricanes.
- If you are SC Baptist Disaster Relief trained please email Angie McCarter at firstname.lastname@example.org and give her your name, church name, mobile phone, email and the areas you are trained in.
Please donate the bottled water you have collected. We will have a collection day set up soon with instructions about when and where to bring the water. DO NOT BRING IT TO US UNTIL WE GIVE THOSE INSTRUCTIONS.
We will also be collecting "Buckets of Hope" like we did with Hurricane Mathew. We will send you the instructions as soon as we make arrangements with Home Depot.
PLEASE DO NOT COLLECT CLOTHES!
Meanwhile keep praying for those affected by this storm, pray especially that our response will bring comfort and hope in the Gospel.
