On Sept. 9, a North Carolina Baptist Men’s disaster recovery team arrived in Walker, La., to help people impacted by Hurricane Isaac. Approximately 450 homes in the area were affected by the storm, according to a report on Baptists on Mission website at baptistsonmission.org.
Over the weekend Baptist Men’s team evaluated needs in the community, and began installing tarps on damaged roofs and clearing mud and debris from homes. The team still needs more volunteers “both skilled and unskilled.” Additional support equipment and teams from N.C. could be assigned to the area in the days to follow.
Volunteers are also being sought for other projects.
