Report: Helping after Hurricane Irene

September 06, 2011

Family and Friends, While the wind and rain from Hurricane Irene have faded, many will deal with the effects for many days to come. We wish to thank all those who have responded to serve those in need. Mid-Atlantic will continue to post updates connecting those in the best position to help those in need with individuals like you that desire to help. We encourage you to read all the press releases since many items will not be repeated. You are encouraged to monitor our website, which will be the primary means of posting the press releases.

Many students, along with friends from First Christian Church Ministries (Kernersville and High Point, NC), Towne South Church of Christ (Elizabeth City, NC), and Hanover Church of Christ (Mechanicville, VA), were able to assist with clean up in about fourteen homes. They also did most of the clean up at the Lowland Church of Christ building. We are very thankful...
