Where to send Hurricane Relief

I have been asked about where to send money for hurricane relief, and if the HBA was involved. Since the ABSC Disaster Relief is our entity for receiving funds and since they already have a line set up for contributions, we are encouraging individuals and churches to send money directly to them. In order to donate, go to: absc.org, and look for the DR site window. It is very easy to locate. Click on the window and you will find instructions on how to contribute.

As you know, there are also many opportunities to serve. We are sending out updates, as we get them from the ABSC, which tell you where and when you can serve, and how you can become trained (required) to serve.

God bless you as you help bear the burden of so many that are in need.

Disaster Relief Deployments

On Saturday, September 2, 2017 4:03 PM, Michelle Hendrix <mhendrix@absc.org> wrote:

Deployment is in full swing.

As of today, Saturday, September 2, 2017, we have 6 teams with 70 volunteers serving in Texas for Hurricane Harvey response.

Our state feeding unit is setting up at the NRG Center in Houston, one of the two largest Houston shelters open. We expect to be there a long time.

Today 28 people loaded a bus provided by Geyer Springs FBC, many on their first ever deployment as a result of Emergency Feeding Training held at the Baptist building last Wednesday.

We have 2 shower/laundry teams serving in Houston – Geyer Springs FBC and Ozark FBC.

Tri-County Recovery team and Shower/Laundry team are both serving in Victoria, TX.

We also sent Incident Management team members today to serve in the Texas Baptist Men headquarters.

As you know, many are hurting with incredible loss. Some have nowhere to go and no resources to do anything at all.

As you continue to pray for the survivors, please also pray for our volunteers – some experiencing the stretch and joys of deployment for the first time.

So thankful for all of you who are clearing your schedules to serve those in crisis!

A number of things to remember:

All volunteers who serve in Texas must be currently credentialed in the discipline in which they are serving with a current ID. Don’t forget to take and wear your ID!

We will most likely be feeding for quite some time and will need many teams of volunteers to serve on our State Feeding Unit (Unit 1).

Emergency Feeding Trainings are happening the next 2 Wednesdays (September 6 and 13) at the Arkansas Baptist State Convention in Little Rock. Please preregister at www.absc.org/disasterreleif.

Two Regional Trainings remain – Sept 9 in Jonesboro and Oct 14 in Little Rock. More info and registration are atwww.absc.org/disasterrelief.

If you are qualified and desire to serve on the Unit 1 Feeding team, please share your availability with us at  FILL OUT FORM (Click Fill Out Form.)

 

Together we are making a difference,
