DISASTER RELIEF

DUBLIN — When natural disasters strike, the International Pentecostal Holiness Church’s (IPHC) Men’s Ministries will be well-prepared to lend a helping hand.
With the help of their disaster relief mobile feeding unit, which is based out of Lake City, S.C., the IPHC’s Men’s Ministries will be able to come to the rescue of communities crippled by natural disasters.
Four hundred guests, including members of the Appalachian Conference of the IPHC, along with local law enforcement agencies, rescue and Red Cross workers, and first responders in general, were invited to see this disaster relief mobile feeding unit in action on Friday (while enjoying lunch at the same time) at the Appalachian Conference site, located off Rt. 11 in Dublin.
Richard Black, Men’s Ministries director for the Appalachian Conference, explained that these particular guests were invited to see a demonstration of the disaster relief unit primarily to raise awareness.
Black noted that many of the Appalachian Conference church members had heard about the unit, so this gave them a chance to see it in action and to show their support for it.
Black also said the local first responders were invited to take part in the demonstration since they would be highly involved with disaster relief if a disaster occurred locally and should be able to see in advance all that the unit has to offer.
As for what the disaster relief mobile feeding unit has to offer, Black said that with the help of volunteers, it is prepared to allow for up to 7,000 meals to be served per day and when it first arrives at a site, is stocked to supply a total of 20,000 meals.
He noted that similar disaster relief units have been involved after events such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Midwest tornadoes in 1999 and Texas floods in 1994, along with other non-natural disasters such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
