Our Disaster Relief Feeding Unit 11 F is making final preparations to respond to flooding as a result of Hurricane Florence. Local assessments of damage and greatest needs are being determined. We anticipate deployment by midweek to North Carolina.

A team of 22 volunteers are on “standby” to depart and the equipment has been loaded and made ready for service. This feeding unit is equipped to serve 15,000 meals per day during a Disaster Response.

Stone Mountain Baptist Association has a feeding unit capable of serving up to 15,000 meals per day in the event of an emergency in or out of our area when a disaster strikes. Our volunteers have worked in the aftermath of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and at the World Trade Center in New York. Annually our unit works in Panama City in cooperation with Lifeway Christian Ministries and their “Beach Reach” efforts to reach college students on Spring Break. Our volunteers provide a pancake breakfast on the beach to students, while Christian college students from our Baptist Collegiate Ministries witness and share Christ. Most recently, our unit was called out to assist after Hurricane Sandy. We served 106,000 meals utilizing 115 volunteers. The unit is manned by volunteers from our churches who have been trained and work in cooperation with the Red Cross and Salvation Army. Annual training is available to  be certified as a volunteer. Each year our Team holds a golf tournament to support this ministry.

SMBA – Hurricane Disaster Relief Our Disaster Relief Feeding Unit 11-F, deployed to Savannah Georgia, served 7,500 meals daily to disaster victims and first responders. We are in need of funds to support our local unit. Know that 100% of your donation will support our local unit and efforts as we respond to this natural disaster. We do not receive funds from the North American Mission Board or the Georgia Baptist Mission Board for equipment repair and replacement. Our Association bears that expense. We have to advance funds to deploy and support the field operation. We are reimbursed for transportation and food purchases, however the reimbursement comes much later.
