With assessments conducted and even some initial responses underway, disaster responders with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship are now calling for volunteers for long-term tornado recovery projects.
CBF U.S. Disaster Response Director Tommy Deal today issued a call for help in three Southern states hit hard by a wave of tornadoes in late April.
“Individuals and churches wanting to plug-in in the months to come are encouraged now to connect with the point of contact in the state of interest,” Deal said in his Friday email blast to Fellowship Baptists.
Deal also urged Baptists to contribute online to the long-term recovery needs of these and other communities. Donors may also give by sending checks to CBF Disaster Response Ministries, P.O. Box 101699, Atlanta, GA 30392. Make checks payable to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship with “Disaster Response-17000” in the memo line.
