Disaster Relief to Florida - Trip #2

The damage in Florida following Hurricane Michael was devastating and catastrophic. Relief efforts will take many long months and we want to do all we can to assist.

Rivertree will make our second trip to Florida on Friday, November 9, (returning Monday, November 12) to mud out houses and deliver supplies. We will be serving at St. Andrews Baptist Church in Panama City.

Can you join us? There are no skills needed, just a willingness to serve those suffering! All you will need to bring a sleeping bag, work clothes, and close-toed shoes. Rivertree will provide everything else including food, transportation, and lodging (cot in gym at church).

Email missions@myrivertree.org to let us know you’d like to join this team (or future teams).

If you can contribute any supplies on the list below, drop off at the church office by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 8.

If you would like to give towards the purchase of needed items, please make a donation to Rivertree and specify "Missions/General" with "Disaster Relief" in the memo line.
