The Disaster Relief Subcommittee of the Global Missions Committee is looking for volunteers to give one day a month to help Tarboro and Princeville recover from Hurricane Matthew. The first trip is Friday, December 16. We will begin a regular schedule of trips after the first of the year.

Teams of volunteers will leave Durham at 7am and drive to Tarboro/Princeville. Teams are assigned to specific tasks for the day – removing drywall, mucking out houses, removing linoleum, carting out damaged furniture, getting homes cleared out so that eventually rebuilding can take place. Teams return home the same evening. (Full details available here.)

If you would like to join us on December 16, contact Dorene Palermo (, Eileen McAvoy (, or Dottie Bartholomay ( by Saturday, December 10. Participants will need to complete the forms below and return them to the church office by Wednesdays  December 14:
