SRBA Volunteers Needed to Staff Manna One in New Bern
The SRBA is part of Region 2 in our Baptist State Convention. I've just learned that Region 2 will be responsible for volunteers to staff Manna One, one of NC Baptists on Mission feeding units, in New Bern from September 26 - October 1 and again from October 11 - 16. We are currently recruiting volunteers for this effort. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Tim Etheridge at 252-341-2838 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tim is a member of Riverview Baptist, Washington and the feeding unit leader for Region 2.
in Morehead City
One Harbor Church has organized a way to give relief to those in the Morehead City area. They have listed supplies that they are collecting, as well as a Disaster Relief Fund that you can donate to.
Wilmington was probably hit the hardest this weekend as the storm made landfall in Wrightsville Beach. Our partnering church, Restoration Church, has opened a relief fund that you can donate to.
As of right now, on-site meal distribution at Second Baptist is scheduled to take place through Friday, September 21. We need 8-10 volunteers for Thursday lunch and dinner and Fridaylunch. Dinner for Friday is covered. If you would like to volunteer, contact me at 252-495-1699 ASAP. Here are the meal times:
Lunch: 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM - Volunteers need to be at Second Baptist by 11 AM and plan to stay 30 minutes afterward for cleanup.
Dinner: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM - Volunteers need to be at Second Baptist by 5 PM and plan to stay 30 minutes afterward for cleanup.
All who volunteer for on-site feeding will need to wear a hat for hygiene purposes. The minimum age to volunteer is 16 years old with an adult. We aren't sure if on-site meal distribution will continue after Friday. If it does, we will let you know.
