Presbyterian Disaster Relief   

Tom Watkins, 252.243.3115, tomwatkins@firstpreswilson.com
Tragically there are times in life when communities are affected by natural disasters – floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes.  In such times, Presbyterians have always sought to be responsive and supportive to neighbors near and far.  First Presbyterian provides special opportunities for giving in such times, but also organizes work teams to be sent to serve.  Men and women of a variety of skill levels are always needed and welcomed.
