The work in Valdosta, GA area from Hurricane Idalia is continuing. The relief effort started with lots of chainsaw jobs, mass feeding of the public, and lots of prayers with homeowners. The number of jobs to be completed on Saturday, September 9th, was 140.
The mass feeding shut down mid-week as majority of the residents and business owners had power restored. The mass feeding teams cooked for The Salvation Army to server the community for a week and cooked between 4,000-6,000 meals each day in addition to feeding the GBDR volunteers.
Please continue to pray for the homeowners in the Valdosta area. Pray for safety of our GBDR volunteers.
Volunteers from KBA's Unit 2F joined others from around the state in feeding and HBA's Unit 4R joined the clean-up and recovery efforts with their chainsaw skills.
The last scheduled training for Disaster Relief is October 6th and 7th at FBC Jonesboro. You can register here: https://gabaptist.org/resource/disaster-relief-training/
The initial training is an introduction on Friday evening and a choice of at least one area on Saturday morning. The choices for Saturday morning are: feeding, clean-up and recovery, family care, and shower/laundry services. Please consider joining the "Yellow Shirt Army". We have volunteers in an age range from 20's - 80's. You don't have to be physically able to work the chain saws or cook in the heat inside or outside to serve. There are lots of other ways to work as a GBDR volunteer. Contact us at KBA office @706-595-5324 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
