Winter Storm 3.7 Update
Volunteers responded to the ice storm event beginning March 7, 2014. All operations were closed the first week of April. In that time period, hot meals were prepared for a shelter in Graham the first weekend. A POD (Point of Distribution) team working in cooperation with Guilford County Emergency Management and Pleasant Garden Baptist Church provided bottled water and hot showers to residents of Pleasant Garden Community. The POD team distributed 1,440 bottles of water to 529 vehicles and some homes in the area.
Assessment teams worked diligently to provide the kind of information needed to mobilize a response. All in all, over 1,200 volunteer days have been put in since starting.
Alamance County closed March 30 weekend and the Guilford site closed week of April 1. The Davidson County site in Welcome closed on the weekend of March 22. Over 570 families have been assisted.
A big thanks to Mebane FBC, Pleasant Garden Baptist, South Elm Baptist, and Welcome FBC for allowing us to setup operations in their church facilities. Thanks also to all of the volunteers that participated.
Money will be needed to provide resources for the response. A Winter Storm 3.7 Relief Reserve fund has been set up. 100% of what you give will be used in these disaster relief and rebuilding efforts.
