Cal-Pac Volunteers in Mission Headed to Louisiana

Calling all Disaster Responders!

We have an opportunity to serve in the Baton Rouge area of Louisiana from November 14-21. Our primary tasks will be mitigating flood damage and securing homes before winter weather.  There are four churches in the area who will be hosting volunteers.

They will provide:

  • Cots or air mattresses
  • Full use of kitchen, including refrigeration, pots and pans and utensils
  • Showers (we have towel sets in the trailer)

The Louisiana conference charges $15 per person per night for church facilities and materials.

We will leave California, for those driving, early on Saturday morning the 12th, pick up the Tool Trailer near Austin on the 13th, and arrive in Louisiana on Monday, the 14th.  We will pull out of Louisiana on Monday, the 21st, arriving back before Thanksgiving.

Because of the short notice, we will function on the ERT model that we have used successfully the past few years.  Everyone contributes $500 cash which covers insurance, common food purchases and conference charges (above). Excess funds will be equitably divided to help defray the cost of towing the trailer, nights on the road, and transportation.  Meals eaten at restaurants are the individual’s responsibility.

To join the team, please contact Doug and Judy Lewis, team leaders immediately.

Please prayerfully consider joining the team.
Doug and Judy Lewis
Cal-Pac Disaster Response/UMVIM Coordinators
