Florence Recovery Update
Find Ways to Volunteer

October 10, 2018 | Visit us at www.cbfnc.org
As the response to the disaster caused by Hurricane Florence shifts
into longer-term recovery, there are still great needs in all of the affected regions.

Volunteer opportunities  are available through Baptists on Mission (click here) and CBF Global (click here ).

CBFNC is focusing attention at this time on two  neglected areas : Trenton and Columbus County. While the needs are tremendous throughout eastern North Carolina, these two have been identified as high needs/low resources.

For information on how you can help in these two areas, contact the following leaders:

Trenton - Daynette Snead ( daynettesnead@gmail.com )
Columbus County - Ryan Clore ( fbcwhitevillepastor@gmail.com )

We are grateful for the generous outpouring of support already received from the CBFNC community. We welcome additional gifts for Florence response, which can be given here .
