FFCC Heads To North Carolina

Hurricane Has Passed But Impact Continues

Carteret County, North Carolina weathered the Hurricane force winds and rain. Then came the flooding from the rivers. Now as the water recedes and the cleanup begins, inspectors are having to condemn homes and apartments leaving a critical shortage of housing for families in the area.  

FFCC will take a team this October to help where needed, especially with those homes that are salvageable where families need help mucking out so repairs can begin.

Contributions towards the rebuilding effort are being accepted just note "Hurricane Florence" on your check or on your online donation and if you are interested in traveling to help in the relief effort contact Phil Harris at philffcc@san.rr.com.
