Superheroes don’t always wear capes. Sometimes, superheroes show up wearing bright yellow caps.
When disaster strikes, some of the first to help are Southern Baptist disaster relief volunteers, clad in their signature yellow caps and jackets.
In the past year, Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief assisted people affected by flash floods and wildfires in Colorado, and following floods in Illinois and Michigan. Volunteers also participated in ongoing recovery and rebuild efforts in West Liberty following tornadoes in 2012 and in areas of New York affected by Superstorm Sandy, also in 2012.
Are you prepared to offer help and hope to those left devastated by flood, fire, hurricane, snowstorm or tornado?
