The Disaster Response Team is an organization that gathers resources and funds so that in the event of a disaster, immediate help can be directed to local congregations in the stricken area. The purpose of the Disaster Response Team is to aid the local congregation in recruiting and receiving volunteers to assist with the emotional and spiritual needs of the disaster victims and to assist them in the clean-up and rebuilding stage.
Alkire Road has volunteered with and provided donations to the Disaster Response Team every since the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy struck the northeast United States. The eldership and congregation as a whole is committed to continuing to support this organization throughout their efforts to cleanup after Hurricane Sandy and through whatever efforts may arise in the future.
More information about the organization can be obtained at the Churches of Christ Disaster Response Team‘s web site.
