Baptist Builders Opportunity in wake of Super Storm Sandy
Mickey Caison, Recovery Coordinator, North American Mission Board asks for volunteers.
“The North American Mission Board is working with the Baptist Convention of New York, North Carolina Baptist Men, Metropolitan New York Baptist Association and local churches to provide ministry in the wake of Super Storm Sandy. In addition to these partners we are working with the Village of Freeport, Robin Hood Foundation and The Salvation Army.
Our goal is to have a Base Camp operational by June 1. In the meantime we need help to set up the Base Camp and begin assessing the construction needs for homes that are in the case management process provided by The Salvation Army.
Starting May 5 we need teams of up to thirty (30) volunteers, who will travel at their own expense, to assist in the repair and rebuild process. Some of the volunteers need to have basic construction skills to help build out the Base Camp and/or work in the homes of those affected by Sandy that have already been assessed and moved through the case management process.
In addition to these volunteers with construction skills we need a few volunteers that can prepare meals for 30 to 50 volunteers and keep the facilities clean. Housing for the volunteers will be in a church on Long Island.”
SBCV has stepped up to be the first team of Baptist Builders on site the week of May 5 thru May 11. If you and others in your church can volunteer for any of the tasks listed above please contact SBCV State Baptist Builders Volunteer Coordinators (Jack & Nancy Dunford) ASAP!
