Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers are mobilizing in response to the storm damage after tornadoes and straightline winds affected Northeast Arkansas. Our teams are currently operating in Trumann, Leachville and Monette. They are also assessing damage in Augusta and other areas with reported damage. Incident Management teams are setting up at New Hope Baptist Church in Black Oak and First Baptist Trumann.
Chainsaw teams from Tri-County Baptist Association, Central Baptist Church of Jonesboro, Walnut Street Baptist Church, Corners Chapel Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Clarksville, Arkansas River Valley Baptist Association, Balboa Baptist Church, Beckspur Baptist Church and Faulkner Baptist Association are arriving throughout the weekend and next week.
The Current-Gaines feeding unit will begin feeding volunteers and survivors this weekend.
Our Mt. Zion shower/laundry unit will be serving Disaster Relief volunteers as teams work with survivors to begin the recovery process.
We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with The Salvation Army serving survivors during this time.
If you would like to donate material goods, there is a collection center set up at the Greene County Baptist Association office located at 2501 Linwood Dr, Paragould, AR, 72450. They are requesting that you only bring water, baby supplies, and snacks.
