RELIEF EFFORTS AND HOW YOU CAN HELP
Convoy of Hope has a truck containing food, water, generators and other relief items to be pre-positioned just outside Florence’s pathway. A full fleet of vehicles, with more relief supplies, is set to deployed to join the advance team. Convoy of Hope’s goal in responding to Hurricane Florence is to give people help and hope in times of great need. Teams in the field will distribute relief supplies to storm survivors, coordinate volunteers and assist in cleanup efforts. Convoy of Hope will be working closely with local, state and federal officials in this response.
Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief equipment is packed and ready. Their staff have been in contact with partners in the projected storm impact areas. They stand ready with a volunteer team to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
