Sandy Update #4

A cluster of more than 80 Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers is being deployed to New York on November 3 to begin providing ministry to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The team includes personnel in the areas of assessment, feeding, chainsaw/cleanup, mudout, shower/laundry, childcare and chaplaincy. They are scheduled to work in the area for about a week, with the possibility of additional volunteers being called out after that if needed.

It is expected that the feeding unit will provide 20-25,000 meals a day for victims and volunteers.

“When Alabama was devastated by tornadoes last year, teams from a dozen states came to our rescue,” said Mel Johnson, Alabama Baptist disaster relief strategist. “Likewise we want to be there for our neighbors in the Northeast in their time of greatest need.”
