Here’s what we know right now *
In South Carolina:
The situation is being monitored very closely by everyone involved. National and state VOADS (Voluntary Organizations Active In Disaster) are ready to mobilize once they determine and assess need.
The state coordinator is Sam Carr and his email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Local CHURCHES with chainsaw or cleanup teams should register on the Crisis Cleanup website and list the name of your individual church NOT ‘PDA’. This will allow you to pick jobs or assignments as they are listed and complete them in the queue.
Gasbuddy.com is being monitored to determine areas running low on fuel and monitor high priority refueling areas.
Volunteersc.org is up and running so unaffiliated volunteers can connect with affiliated groups and find work.
Horry county (Myrtle Beach area) Disaster Relief / Waccamaw VOAD set-up disasterhelp.me – this is their central site for VOADs, those impacted by disaster, volunteers and all the paperwork that needs to be completed.
* Foothills Presbytery Committee on Shared Ministry (Mission Team) is meeting today to discuss other ways we can support and send aid to those affected by the wrath of Florence.
