Volunteers Drive Hundreds Of Miles To Help Eastern NC Hurricane Victims

More than a month after hurricane Irene moved through the east volunteers are still helping residents try to get back on their feet.

The Baptist Men were out helping residents in Lowland Wednesday. The group of men drove 18 hours from Louisiana to help homeowners tear out flood damaged floors and walls as well as help people get large tree debris out of their yards. Organizers say they rely on volunteers for this work and they welcome anyone to help out if they can.

"We will pair them up with a team if we have one in there and we'll send them out. Now there's some things they can't do. We aren't going to give them a chainsaw to run unless they are trained and equipped to do that, but they can help the teams with some of the labor things they're doing and we'll certainly take other people to help." said Coordinator Scott Daughtry.

Potential volunteers or people who need the Baptist Men's services can go to their staging ground at the Bayboro baptist church.
