Virginia Baptist Disaster Response Update
Feeding Need in WV
Small feeding teams of 4-6 volunteers are needed in West Virginia to support rebuild efforts. Volunteers will work in a commercial kitchen at the host church to prepare meals for visiting teams. Teams should include at least half DR-trained feeding volunteers. Volunteers interested in feeding or with expired credentials are welcome!
Fill out the interest form at the link below, and BGAV will follow up as they are able to match teams with the need in West Virginia. The most significant needs are September 11-18 and October 16-23.

Rebuild in West Virginia
As BGAV continues to assess the long-term rebuilding needs and determine a partner site for Virginia Baptists, volunteers are welcome in Rainelle through two different partners. Some mudout jobs remain, and rebuild jobs are beginning to take shape.
Interested in serving in serving in West Virginia? Email Kristen, BGAV Rebuild Volunteer Coordinator, and she will put you in touch with one of BGAV's partners! She can also connect you with opportunities in Appomattox or Tappahannock.
