PWNC Disaster Assistance Trip

West Virginia

May 20-26, 2018

 In June of 2016, West Virginia experienced 2 days of heavy rain, resulting in what has been called a1,000 year flood. Twenty-four people lost their lives. A state of emergency was declared in 44 counties and the Elkview River crested 27’ above normal.

We will be working with the West Virginia Ministry of Advocacy & Workcamps, Inc. (WVMAW), Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, and staying in the Ronceverte Presbyterian Church in Greenbrier County.

We will arrive on Sunday and leave the following Saturday. We are flexible if some cannot stay the full week. Our principal work in previous trips has been putting up drywall and getting it painted so that residents can get back into their homes again.

Dates: Sunday, May 20 – Saturday, May 26, 2018

Cost: $250 per person for the whole week; cost will be prorated for those staying less than the full week. The PWNC Missions Committee will be covering the cost of food for the week. Bring money for supper on Wednesday evening.

Registration forms are available from the Presbytery Office and through the PWNC website. 

Questions may be directed to Bob Abel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) before April 8, 2018.
