The National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. hosts a FEMA Town Hall Meeting in Baton Rouge, LA

By Warren Miller, NBC Disaster Management Field Coordinator |  August 28, 2016

In response to the recent major flooding and declared state of emergency in Louisiana, a Town Hall Meeting was held on Friday, August 26th at 6 pm at the Mt. Zion First Baptist Church of Baton Rouge where the Reverend Dr. René F. Brown is pastor.  Presentations were made by several federal and state agencies, including the

Church leaders from flood-affected areas and the general public participated in Q&A with the state and federal agency representatives.  A wide range of topics were addressed, including assistance for individuals, nutrition support, unemployment, business owners and more.  Over 600 people attended the Town Hall Meeting, with over 60 NBC, USA, Inc. pastors present. 
The NBC Disaster Relief team was able to connect with Dr. René F. Brown to collect cleaning supplies to be distributed to churches and their members affected by the flood. There were a total of 130 cases of supplies made available to them. Other efforts are in the works. It takes teamwork to make the dream work! Continue to give to the NBC Disaster Relief fund, so that we can intensify our efforts to minister to those in need.
