CARE: Christian Action Responding To Emergencies

All types of workers are needed for this mission effort:

Tree Cutters
Limb Draggers
Group Directors
Food & Water Servers
Safety Managers
Equipment Maintenance Providers
Clean-Up Crews

CARE is a domestic mission effort providing local, state and regional disaster assistance in the form of tree removal services and debris clean-up. Disaster clean-up services can be expensive and in short supply. After a recent tornado in West Tennesseee, one elderly woman was charged $4,000 just to make one cut and lower the tree to ground with no other service.

CARE services are offered first to the elderly, disabled, church members and then to the general public. All services are free of charge but recipients are welcome to make a donation to the disaster relief program.

The primary goal is to relieve the logistic and visual stresses caused by by these disasters and restore a clean and safe environment for residents and emergency personnel. Utility companies (electric, water and structural) will not come on a site and start repairs until all objects are removed (not touching) from structures.

Members of the Smyrna Church of Christ have teamed with members of Saint Marks Methodist Church for several years in providing these services. The Saint Marks facility provides a storage area for vehicles and tools used in this relief effort.

If you would like to volunteer or have a need for this service, please contact one of the Elders at the Smyrna Church of Christ.
