Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief

The Progressive National Baptist Convention continues to place emphasis on developing a more comprehensive Disaster Preparedness Program which provides timely support, meaningful services and technical assistance to communities impacted by the growing number of natural disasters in the South and Central United States. Presently the PNBC Disaster Preparedness Program is playing a critical role in promoting awareness, training through education and forming alliances in supporting long term recovery efforts in areas devastated by hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters. Our international organization has aggressive protocols in place to aid community base organizations, interface with key leadership, and faith-based groups as we expand the necessary core competencies to respond, aid and assist people during these type tragedies.

Over the last six years, Rooms To Go, Inc., a highly regarded national corporation has been a premiere corporate sponsor and supporter of PNBC’s Disaster Preparedness Program. Due to their generosity, PNBC has been able to conduct training sessions throughout many Southern and South central communities along with delivering non perishables food items, blankets and supplies to hundreds of families. Partnerships and alliances currently exist with a host of businesses, American Red Cross, FEMA, VOAD and local, state, regional and Federal Agencies.

 

KENTUCKY DISASTER RELIEF
Tornados devastate sections of Kentucky in Mid-December

On Friday, December 10th, and early Saturday, December 11, 2021, devastating storms unleashing tornadoes wreaked havoc across parts of the central and southern US including Kentucky.

Governor Andy Beshear confirmed dozens of deaths and describes Friday as “indescribable and one of the toughest nights in Kentucky history.”

The unprecedented storms have left thousands displaced and in need of immediate and urgent assistance. The Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. Disaster Relief Team lead by Dr. Frankie Jones is actively gathering resources as we conduct assessments and speak with the relevant authorities.

PNBC President, Rev. David Peoples, a Kentucky Native, has confirmed that by the grace of God, he and his family and all PNBC church leaders and members are unharmed. “On behalf of First Lady and I, and the entire PNBC Family, we continue to offer prayers and support to Kentucky and surrounding States left reeling from the devastating impact of the storms. We are grateful to our PNBC Disaster preparedness team led by Dr. Frankie Jones who immediately sprung into action and will be traveling to Kentucky on Monday to conduct a more thorough needs assessment.”

President Peoples encourages all to meditate on Psalm 91: 1-11 and to “please join us in prayer for those who have lost loved ones, businesses homes and much more as we prepare our hearts to give and assist in every way we can!”
