Volunteers needed for flood recovery in Louisiana
Volunteers are urgently needed for flood recovery in Louisiana, said Frank McCrary, KNCSB director of disaster relief.
In August an unnamed storm dumped more than 25 inches of rain in central and western Louisiana. An estimated 150,000 homes were damaged along with 60 Southern Baptist churches.
KNCSB is working out of Zoar Baptist Church in Baton Rouge. Two disaster-relief units from Heartland Church Network in Nebraska—a laundry unit and a flood-recovery unit—are based there.
Flood recovery in Louisiana will be a long-term effort. Volunteers will be needed for months.
Financial donations may be sent to KNCSB Disaster Relief, 5410 SW 7th St., Topeka, KS 66606-2398. Make contributions out to KNCSB and designate them for “Disaster Relief.”
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.
