Rev. Franklin Graham: 'Army of Volunteers' Needed for Florence Recovery

By    |   Thursday, 13 September 2018 12:26 PM

Samaritan's Purse, the humanitarian organization linked to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is looking for an "army of volunteers" to help out over the next three to four weeks after Hurricane Florence hits the Carolinas, the agency's CEO, Rev. Franklin Graham, said Thursday.

"We are preparing here at Samaritan's Purse," Graham told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" about the organization, based in Boone, North Carolina. "We have got trucks with tools and equipment ready to respond as soon as the storm has passed."

Hurricane Florence will be a flood event, said Graham, and there will be many homes damaged.

"We help homeowners when a tree has fallen on their house," he said about just some of the organization's work. "We will go in and help mud out a home and take the drywall down so the house can dry out so you can repair it."

But such work takes an "army of volunteers,", said Graham, asking that people who want to help go to the group's website, www.samaritanspurse.org.

Samaritan's Purse is a non-denominational, Christian organization that responds to emergency situations in 110 different countries, "in the name of Jesus Christ," said Graham. "God loves them and hasn't forgotten. They think when a storm comes maybe God is mad at them. He is not."

Chaplains also sent from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to minister to victims' spiritual needs, said Graham.
