N.C. feeding unit in Florida 

Irma was a very destructive hurricane. Meteorologists say it could have been worse, and most were predicting more destruction than the storm actually delivered to the southeast. Clearly damage in the state of North Carolina was minimal, while Florida, Georgia and Alabama felt a heavier impact than originally expected.

Irma’s destructive wind, rain and storm surge could have been worse, but you can’t tell the resident of south Florida that it wasn’t bad. Many of them lost most or all of their material possessions. It was devastating. Now we can do something to help these neighbors to the south.

Richard Brunson, executive director of North Carolina Baptist Men (NCBM)/Baptists on Mission, said some N.C. disaster relief volunteers traveled to Florida Tuesday to assist with Hurricane Irma relief efforts. Florida Baptist disaster relief leaders asked N.C. to set up Feeding Unit 2 in the South Miami area. This unit is able to provide 30,000 meals a day. N.C. volunteers will be feeding people across southern Florida, including the Florida Keys.

We need to pray for the disaster relief volunteers and the people they are serving. We can also engage in their ministry through our gifts to the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO). This very important offering supports the ministry of NCBM now and all year long. Our gifts this month will meet needs in the paths of Harvey, Irma and storms to come. We can do this!

Gifts can be given through your local church, designated for NCMO, or here.
