Calhoun County Commissioners showed their appreciation to the Calhoun Baptist Association Disaster Relief Cleanup and Recovery Team for assisting Calhoun County residents during the recent flooding that occurred in Saks last month.
The association is made up of 90 baptist churches within the county that aims to cooperate as a group to achieve goals involving missions, training church leaders and more. The disaster team volunteered for hours helping residents recover what was left of their home. One resident home received significant damage, and she didn’t have flood insurance. Disaster Relief Director Scotty Duke says he knew it was his mission to help in whatever way he could.
In recent years, the team has responded to several natural disasters throughout the state and country. Many of the volunteers believe that having the heart to help people in their time of need is one of the biggest gifts to receive.
