Hurricane Ida was the strongest storm to make landfall in Louisiana since the 1850s, and the storm did extensive damage across much of the eastern portion of the country. Virginia volunteers helped begin the cleanup response in New Jersey, and there is an urgent need for additional cleanup teams. There are several hundred homes requesting cleanup help. We are asking trained volunteers to sign up below. The number of volunteers will be limited to maintain COVID protocols, so we are anticipating several weeks of cleanup. Please register to serve below.
The BGAV is partnering with the Baptist Forum for Aid and Development in responding to the recent earthquake. This response will be a coordinated effort among global Baptists including those in Haiti who will lead the response. These trusted partners are a joy to work with and we are grateful for the support we can provide. Currently our best response is with financial contributions.
Hygiene Kits for Refugees and Hurricane Recovery
Virginia Baptist Disaster Response, in support of Virginia Department of Emergency Management, is asking churches to create hygiene kits which will be available as refugees from Afghanistan come to the United States and move toward resettlement.
We are asking churches to deliver the kits they have on hand by September 30.
