Community Disaster Response Team (CDRT)

The Presbytery’s Community
Disaster Response Team is continuing its “Clean-Up Buckets” drive.
*Please try to purchase items in sizes as close as possible to the listed description.

Buckets may be dropped off at :

Bethpage Presbyterian Church
6020 Mooresville Rd., Kannapolis, NC
(*please contact Fred Wally at 
or phone 704-892-1580 before delivering items to Bethpage)  

Presbytery’s Community Disaster Response Team has offered the following items or services to eastern NC. We are working through NC VOAD. Once the storm hits, we will decide where the need is the greatest and assign items accordingly.
*600 plus flood cleanup buckets
*53 foot medical office trailer
*transportation of supplies/food/water for other groups
*shower buildings/trailers
*trailers for on site storage of emergency supplies
We are also working with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to help them in any way we can, particularly the potential relocation of assets from Florida to the NC area. Things will change for us as the hurricane changes or moves off projected course. We are taking part in all NC VOAD conference calls to stay on top of the situation. We are requesting that all POC churches start making more flood cleanup buckets to replace those that we will be shipping out.

Fred Wally and Sam Carriker recently delivered one of our shower buildings to Birmingham Presbyterian Church in Ft. Myers, Florida

The Presbytery of Charlotte’s Community Disaster Response Team invites you to become a part of this ACTION ministry!

Formed in 1999 after Hurricane Floyd struck North Carolina, this Presbytery of Charlotte ministry has had to mature from necessity responding to 2005’s Hurricane Katrina and its challenging aftermath. Since then we’ve continued to…
* sponsor and support mission trips primarily throughout North Carolina and the Southeast
* supply our churches with onsite trailers for food, clothing and disaster supply collections
* provide low-no cost supplies transportation for local agencies and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance

This is a great project for Church Mission Teams, Presbyterian Men/Women, Youth Groups, Boy Scouts, etc.  Funding is provided by Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. Churches do not have to provide funding for the building projects, but may make a contribution if desired. Each completed building is the property of the Presbytery of Charlotte.

1: Church representative contacts the Presbytery’s Community Disaster Response Team (CDRT) and expresses interest in construction
2:   CDRT will meet with your church and explain the building project and what is required
3:   If your church decides to take on the project, we will discuss whether you want to do a complete building with electrical and plumbing or if you want the CDRT to do electrical and plumbing installation.
4:  CDRT will supply the church with all materials and plans to construct a shower building
5:  The CDRT is available during construction if problems or questions come up.
6:  Once the building is completed, we load it onto a trailer and put it in storage until needed at a site.
