2018 Tornado Relief Efforts
Tornado Relief Efforts
Ways we are involved in the tornado relief effort locally:
Many of us have already made some contacts and offered assistance. West Market Church will be involved with the tornado relief effort for months to come. As the First Responders open up more areas for volunteers, plan to get involved. Immediately, there are several ways you can help in the organized efforts to meet the needs of the residents and businesses in the path of the tornado. Below is a list of contact information:

The Greensboro News & Record has a list of agencies and churches located in the relief area who are involved in the work.
Please contact these agencies to be specific as to their immediate needs before you make a purchase and attempt a delivery. Roads are still very impassable and attempting to get to the heart of the storm area may hamper efforts of first responders, field operations and Duke Energy. Check back frequently for updated information about future relief efforts, as the needs will continue to change as we move forward.
