Hurricane Matthew – Flooding Continues
The effects of Hurricane Matthew are still unfolding. Countless trees are down all through the path of the hurricane, with many on houses scattered across five states, FL, GA, SC, NC and VA. Several rivers are not expected to crest for several more days and many families are preparing for major flooding, especially in SC and NC. MNA Disaster Response staff members are busy helping with assessments in hardest hit areas. Shower trailers have been set up at several churches for use by displaced homeowners and first responders. There is an IMMEDIATE NEED FOR CHAINSAW VOLUNTEER TEAMS as well as financial help for those affected by this hurricane.

The Need for Volunteers Continues in Louisiana
With over 145,000 houses affected in LA due to the historic flood disaster of August 2016 the need for volunteers continues. MNA Disaster Response is working to assist the six local PCA churches in the affected community. Each church has identified congregants and those in their immediate communities that are in need of help. The initial debris removal and muck-out work is almost complete and the move from disaster response to recovery is underway. During this phase repairs and rebuilding become the focus. Skill levels of all types are needed. If you would like to go and serve as a volunteer, please click here.
