KNCSB Disaster Relief is serving in Louisiana
KNCSB is serving in Louisiana to assist in flood recovery.
The flooding in Louisiana extends from Lake Charles, Covington and Baton Rouge. This is being reported as the worst disaster since Hurricane Sandy.
Twenty parishes have been affected by the flood. Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) has established seven disaster zones. The most urgent need is for chaplains, feeding unit workers, mud-out assessors, trailers and teams. SBDR is estimating that volunteers will be needed through the end of October.
Louisiana is also asking for donations. A list of needed items will be provided by Louisiana Disaster Relief and added here later. The urgent need is for gift cards to help provide basic necessities. Many evacuated with only what they were wearing; their homes were destroyed. Please do not send clothes—there is no way to distribute them.
Financial donations may be sent to KNCSB, 5410 SW 7th St., Topeka, KS 66606-2398. Make contributions out to KNCSB and designate for “Disaster Relief” on the memo line.
Funds given to KNCSB Disaster Relief will be used for general disaster relief purposes rather than for a specific disaster. This allows the use of donated funds for the most pressing current or future needs as well as supporting teams responding to the disaster.
