600 FLOOD BUCKETS DELIVERED TO BERTIE COUNTY
OCTOBER 22 TO AID TORNADO RECOVERY EFFORTS
CHURCH WORLD SERVICE REFERS MULTI-DENOMINATIONAL REBUILDING TEAM
TO PRESBYTERY OF CHARLOTTE’S DISASTER RESPONSE TEAM
August 4, 2020: Tropical Storm Isaias passed through eastern North Carolina’s Bertie County, spawning an EF-3 tornado that left 2 dead and multiple houses destroyed. Rebuilding stockpiles were depleted by 2020’s extraordinary number of disasters. So when a multidenominational relief team asked Church World Service for help they referred them to a recovery partner in Charlotte-our Presbytery’s Disaster Response Team.
October 22, 2020: Disaster Response Team members drove a trailer filled with our entire stockpile of 600 flood buckets-made entirely by Presbytery of Charlotte churches and members-to a Greenville, NC warehouse for distribution to local families and mission teams.
FLOOD BUCKETS NEEDED NOW-AND FOR SOME TIME TO COME
Flood buckets are a very practical aid to anyone having to dig out after a storm, flood or tornado. We ask that any person, family, group or team that feels a call to help those affected by this type of disaster consider making a flood/cleanup bucket.
