Teams of volunteers from the Shenandoah District make several trips to Brethren Disaster Ministries project sites each year to help rebuild communities damaged by hurricanes, floods, and fires. All expenses are paid for the volunteer crew members and transportation is provided. The teams generally leave on Sundays, put in a week’s work, and return home on Saturdays. In addition, proceeds from the annual Shenandoah District Disaster Auction and Sale in May help support this ministry.
Upcoming Project Trips
Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Coordinator Jerry Ruff said the District plans to serve in Dawson Springs, Kentucky, this year. An estimated 900 homes are still in need of moderate to major repairs or replacement after an F4 tornado decimated the area on December 11, 2021. The trip to Dawson Springs is approximately nine and a half hours from the District Office.
