I live in Trenton and it still stinks
Natema Drummond

my family live in craven county, two towns over from new bern. Havelock is devastated too. Tornados and flood waters have damaged that area. families are still displaced

Vanceboro is pitiful
Josie

I haven't travelled around that much, because I honestly don't think I could handle it. We have family in Carteret and Craven County, too.

Natema and Josie - thank you for sharing, and I am so sorry. If there are organizations or ways to support recovery in your communities, please let me know and we can share on our Faithful Families networks (amhardis@ncsu.edu)

My parents lost everything in their refrigerator and freezer, but they can't get any assistance to replace the food even for the short-term. What can they do if DSS and DHHS won't help?
Natema Drummond

My father kept a two story church open and available during the hurricane for displaced families. The building is in downtown New Bern. They were in an elevated structure with no electricity but they were warm, dry and safe and together with people who care.
Natema Drummond

that makes complete sense

Onslow County Schools remain closed next week.

Faith communities can start working with other churches they don't often partner with, it's a great first step to collaboation that could make a bigger impact. Many churches work in silos
Josie
01:00:55
I think that volunteers/relief workers could create spaces where people can just be together and fellowship
Ellen
01:01:08
Faith communities might think of hosting surveys/lsietning sessions one month/6 months after storm to see how people are recovering
Josie
01:01:09
Good idea, Ellen

Faison UMC (EdNC Faith covered them!) did an outdoor movie and popcorn while also being a hub for activity. Stress-relief is really important and it was cool they thought to do that

ECU faculty and staff get 24 hours of community service leave per year. Serving in the aftermath of a disaster is supported by built-in initatives like that. Each organization will be different. But, I think that is an amazing service that ECU does.

These are great ideas everyone - thanks for sharing! It would be great to share some of these on our FF blog, so we might reach out to you to learn more

The FEMA online preparedness trainings are free to complete and are very useful. In addition, they can be added to a resume. It helps you in professional development, but it also prepares you for helping in a time of disaster.

WE have just found out that the Onslow Schools will not open any earlier than Oct. 15th. We are trying to get 4H activities into the disaster shelter to work with the kids.
Josie

Jones Middle School and Trenton Elementary will not reopen, so that would be something good for the children here, too. I will pass along this idea
Josie
01:11:20
Will these slides be available?
peggie garner
01:11:59
that would be awesome.
Josie
