Samaritan's Purse International Relief

Sign up to assist homeowners affected by Hurricane Florence.

Hurricane Florence made landfall Friday morning at Category 1 strength near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, east of Wilmington. Certain parts of the Carolinas are expected to receive up to 40 inches of rain this weekend, causing terrible flooding. Storm surge has already reached 10 feet in some areas, and a number of water rescues have taken place, notably in New Bern, North Carolina. Hundreds of thousands of people are already without power.

Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief equipment is packed and ready.  Our staff have been in contact with our partners in the projected storm impact areas.  We now want to stand ready with our volunteer team to be the hands and feet of Jesus.  Once the damage assessments are completed and deployment locations are identified, our staff will contact you to discuss scheduling your volunteer trip.  Please join us in praying for all those in the path of Hurricane Florence. 

Project Description: Volunteers will be assisting homeowners affected by the hurricane. Volunteers will assist with mud-outs, debris cleanup, roof tarping and chainsaw work. 

Maximum Team Size: Fifteen people. Both teams and individuals are welcome.

Minimum Age: Volunteers must be at least 14 years or older. Youth, ages 14-15, must be accompanied by their parent/legal guardian and youth, ages 16-17, must be accompanied by an adult chaperone unless the team is registered as a youth group. Youth groups may serve with Samaritan’s Purse and are required to complete a Youth Leader Covenant. Please read more information about our Youth Policy in the FAQ section.

Additional Information: Meals and sleeping quarters will be provided for overnight volunteers. Volunteers need to bring twin size air mattress or cot, linens/sleeping bag, pillow, towels and personal hygiene items. Tools will be provided, but volunteers may bring their own tool belts and small hand tools. Volunteers should dress in long pants and bring work gloves, safety glasses, and sturdy boots. Volunteers should bring rubber boots for working in flooded areas.
