DISASTER RELIEF MINISTRY helps devastated communities with the rebuilding of homes and communities after natural disasters strike. Teams of volunteer labor, skill, and supplies provide aid, accompanied by experienced leadership, with a commitment to competent workmanship, and working thru a connection with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) or other disaster relief agencies as available.
Hurricane Ian Aid
January 7-15, 2023
After a successful trip to Florida in October to help with cleanup efforts following Hurricane Ian, POJ’s Disaster Relief Ministry is organizing a second trip for January 7-15, 2023. Volunteers must be able bodied and willing to do manual labor (at your own pace). You do not need to have a background in construction as a variety of skill levels will be needed. Having your own tools (hammer, pry bar, tape measure, gloves, work boots, eye protection, etc) is helpful, as is training in first aid and CPR.
To volunteer, email ministry leader Brown Pearson or call him at 804-347-8895.
Can't Join a Trip In Person? Give Financial Support
Your financial gift helps cover expenses incurred by the ministry's relief trips. These include supplies, food, travel, and lodging. Donations may be made to the presbytery's Disaster Relief Ministry or to the disaster relief mission fund of Southminster Church (which provides logistics and accounting services for the trips).
