Samaritan’s Purse is responding following a deadly tornado in Catawba County, North Carolina, on Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 9. Severe storms moved through the area and developed into a tornado that sadly claimed one life and injured several others. Dozens of homes sustained damage from the storm as trees toppled and debris littered the area.

Day volunteers ages 14 and up can start Jan. 11 to assist with tarping roofs, cleaning up debris, and operating chain saws. We are basing operations for Disaster Relief Unit #3 out of Tri-City Baptist Church of Conover, North Carolina, where volunteer orientation will also be held.

Please note that we are not hosting overnight volunteers during this response.

SUPPORT
U.S. Disaster Relief Samaritan's Purse mobilizes and equips thousands of volunteers to provide emergency aid to U.S. victims of wildfires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In the aftermath of major storms, we often stay behind to rebuild houses for people with nowhere else to turn for help.
