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
February 3-11, 2024
The presbytery’s Disaster Relief Ministry is returning to Florida for a fifth mission trip. Join in February 3-11 to help people near Fort Myers who are still experiencing the effects of 2022’s Hurricane Ian.
Volunteers of all skill levels are needed to repair homes with a variety of needs. During a previous trip, volunteers installed trim and painted walls, updated a bathroom with new fixtures, and replaced a water heater. A cook also is needed.
New participants should plan to attend a mandatory training on January 17 in Chesterfield.
To volunteer for this trip or ask questions, email ministry leader Brown Pearson or call him at 804-347-8895.
