Trip #2:  Leave 4:00 p.m. Thursday, 9/14 – Sunday evening, 9/17 to Lumberton

(Some will join us on Friday) Needs: mud-out crew, kitchen crew, and distribution center crew.  We will stay at Crestwood Baptist Church in Lumberton.  

The Plan: A mud-out crew will need to bring all tools and supplies needed to remove sheetrock, flooring, and other damaged materials.  A kitchen crew will help relieve Crestwood's overwhelmed members who have been serving the meals to the volunteer work crews (food provided by Crestwood).  A distribution center crew will help sort and organize already donated clothing and supplies for needy families who come for those items.
