West Presbyterian Church, New Bern is hosting volunteers in response to Hurricane Florence.

  • Minimum age 16; youth to adult ratio 4 to 1
  • Maximum team size 24
  • The government and voluntary organizations are still in a “sustained” response period, meaning that there remains response work yet to be done. This includes but is not limited to maintaining or restoring power, providing humanitarian assistance, cleaning up debris, mucking out homes, and providing emotional and spiritual care.

Presbyterian Church USA volunteers typically engage and partner with PDA during the longer- term recovery period, which often begins around three to six months post-disaster and can continue for years thereafter.  Some volunteer groups are eager to assist now during the response period. It is important to remember that the churches that are engaging in the “response” hosting are not connected to long term work partners; teams will need to be self-sustaining.  While the churches have opened their doors for teams to eat, sleep, and shower, they do not have the connections to specific work projects.  Teams will need to connect to a local volunteer reception area or find work on their own.
