Recovery Help in North Carolina

Teams from the Presbytery of the James are assisting with Hurricane Florence recovery in New Bern, North Carolina. The first trip, October 7-14, involved primarily cleaning out homes and assessing the damage for additional response. Two additional trips in November continued to rehabilitate homes.

The effort is led by Brown Pearson, an elder at Southminster Presbyterian Church, who brings 15 years of experience in disaster recovery on the Gulf Coast, West Virginia, and Florida.

To volunteer, please email Brown or call him at 804-347-8895.
