North Carolina Lumberton Physical Deployment

Humanity Road has been providing assistance with volunteer staffing, badging, scheduling and training for the local volunteers helping a local community resource and relief center at the Allenton Rural Fire Department in Lumberton NC. Also, we have been producing local status reports for officials, and performing outreach to area aid agencies to collaborate and provide updates on operations. Huge thank you to the local Church of Latter Days Saints for your assistance, the loan of your hand trucks, and the donation of the meals and hygiene kits.

Big shout out to the local volunteers from Allenton, and Lumbertion including students from the Lumberton High School. Thank you for helping. We are all just neighbors helping neighbors here. It very much reminds me of my tiny home town in Boydton.
