NC United Methodist Churches Restore Homes Devastated by Hurricane Matthew
Hurricane Matthew damaged and destroyed thousands of homes throughout the southeast, particularly in North Carolina. In addition to state and federal efforts to aid those affected by the storm, nonprofits across the state also provide critical support. Since the natural disaster struck in October, the NC Conference of the United Methodist Church has received 165 requests for help with home cleaning and demolition. Four hundred volunteers have cleaned out debris from 72 homes to date, completing more than 35,000 hours of volunteer work in local communities. To the families affected by Hurricane Matthew, these hours of assistance are invaluable.
After completing the additional home cleaning requests, and with continued support from the United Methodist Church, the next phase of work will tackle rebuilding.
