Disaster Relief Training

Give

Even if you can’t go, you can help relief workers and supplies get where they are most needed. In many cases, financial support is just as effective as volunteer work.

Baptists On Mission

Our valued partner in disaster relief is Baptists on Mission. North Carolina disaster relief is funded primarily by donations, and 100 percent of your designated gift to this organization will be used for these efforts.
