Volunteers still helping those recovering from Hurricane Matthew

CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – It’s been a little over a month since Hurricane Matthew hit the Carolinas but people are still recovering from the damage.

A group of volunteers from Danville, Virginia were in Conway the past two weeks helping remove trees from homes. “God’s Pit Crew” has been to the Grand Strand before and sent volunteers to help after Hurricane Matthew. On Friday, the volunteers worked on several houses including one off SC 90 with a large tree on the roof.

“Without these great partners all working together there’s no way we could serve all of these families,” said Resort Missionary, Todd Wood.

Impact Ministries of Horry County helped organize this and several other volunteer groups from Catholic Charities, Samaritans Purse and the Salvation Army. Over 800 families have registered for help through http://www.goimpactmb.org/disasterrelief.

“We’ve been able to go out and remove trees from their home we’ve been able to mud out their home with all the mud and debris that’s inside taking that out to the street and helping to do the mold remediation spray so they have a safe home,” said Wood.
