Memo: Disaster Relief
By Dennis Belz, CO State Disaster Relief Director
The recovery effort from Hurricane Harvey will take several months or longer! The expense to get our CBDR teams of volunteers to this area is very expensive as we will be deploying several of our CBDR vehicles and trailers to assist in Bringing: Help, Hope and Healing to those along the coast of Texas and Louisiana. We are planning to have a continuous flow of teams to deploy for 2 week periods over the coming months. As of today, we will begin deploying around September 5th. We have to wait until the local officials give us the “GO” to respond. We also have to wait until the waters recede so we can get into the communities to assist them.
All that CBDR does is FREE to the home owners which include: Mass Feeding (over 1k meals per day, debris clean up, chainsaw, mud-out, shower/laundry and generators. Our volunteers are trained, background checked and credentialed.
Please consider partnering with us first with PRAYER and secondly with financial assistance. With your generous support, CBDR will be able to keep a strong presence on the ground in the Gulf Coast area.
Colorado Baptist Disaster Relief (CBDR) is in desperate need of volunteers!
- If you have not been trained yet in CBDR, we will do the training in Texas while you are assisting those in need. We would like everyone to consider doing a 2 week deployment if possible. (we are willing to work with you if you can only do one week).
- Email your name, cell phone and dates you are available to email@example.com.
- Complete the full registration forms (download below) and get them to Rhonda Nanney at Rnanney@cbgc.org before deploying. You will also need to show your proof of health insurance when you arrive on site.
- Below is a list of suggested items that you will want to bring on deployment.
The Colorado Baptist Disaster Relief ministries are comprised of approximately 450 volunteers from all over the state who
are committed to sharing the hope of Jesus with those whose lives have been impacted by disasters.
Our specialized areas of ministry include: chainsaw, flood recovery/mud out, ash out, food preparation, chaplaincy, shower unit, and communication unit.
We exist to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ in times of disaster.
