Hurricane Florence Update

Hurricane Florence Update


ROLC Rebuilding After Hurricane Florence from River of Life Church on Vimeo.

After Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina in September 2018, we reached out to help our community in Jacksonville rebuild, repair, and restore their homes and properties. We have a resilient community who never lost their faith! While we are no longer going out every week to help rebuild, we are praying for our community and helping as we can.  Please refer to the below organizations for additional help! #GracePowerChange #NCStrong

ROL will be partnering with local and international relief agencies to provide support for our church and community members who have needs after Hurricane Florence.  Listed below are some ways that you can receive help, along with information about volunteer opportunities in our area.


Samaritan’s Purse

We will be partnering with Samaritan’s Purse for Hurricane Florence Relief efforts. Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief organization, is currently accepting requests for:

• Chainsaw work on trees
• Removal of personal property and furniture
• Muck and gut homes and sanitizing treatment
• Temporary roof repair

Samaritan’s Purse receives volunteers and does orientation at 7:30am and again at 12:30pm (contact the organization for applicable days).  All volunteers must bring:

• Your own lunch
• Long, heavy work pants
• Sturdy work shoes/boots
• Gloves

They provide water, and will take donations of Powerade/Gatorade and ice.

If you would like to volunteer OR need help, please contact the Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief Unit in Jacksonville:

SBP is a national disaster resilience and recovery nonprofit whose mission is to shrink the time between disaster and recovery

SBP has deployed two teams (AmeriCorps and staff) to support immediate needs in North and South Carolina. They will conduct mucking, gutting and mold remediation in communities that need it most, and then will quickly move to rebuilding work when the time is right.
