Update on Current Disasters

October 17, 2018

MSDR has been asked by Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief to adopt Albany, GA. The citizens have experienced extensive tree damage due to the wind strength of Hurricane Michael. Currently, we have credentialed chainsaw teams responding to the 350 job requests we have to date. We are in need of more credentialed chainsaw volunteers. Please e-mail Shane McGivney at smcgivney@mbcb.org if you are credentialed and can help.



September 25, 2018 – A team of volunteers from the Mississippi Baptist Disaster Relief State Task Force is in Bolivia, North Carolina feeding people in need. We also have a team doing mud-out in the same area. Several associations are putting together mud-out teams to send in the coming weeks. Local associations and the state Disaster Relief office are working together to build mud-out teams led by credentialed Disaster Relief volunteers.

If interested, please contact your Association office. If you have questions, please e-mail smcgivney@mbcb.org or dvail@mbcb.org.


The DR State Task Force is on stand-by and preparing for deployment due to Hurricane Florence. Teams will be needed for extended response over the next few weeks.
