Red Cross, Baptist Men arrive in Bladen County to feed folks

DUBLIN — Just as folks around the Mother County were beginning to wonder if help would come, the American Red Cross and the North Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief showed up.

Tuesday night, a joint effort of the two agencies will begin serving meals at Dublin First Baptist Church, aided by members of the church. The church is still without power itself, so meals will be cooked at the Baptist Disaster outpost in Fayetteville and brought to Dublin.

“The loss is so great and the impact so widespread that they started in places like Fayetteville and Lumberton and are working their way out,” said Dublin pastor Cameron McGill, “but they are here now and ready to help.”

Meals will arrive in Dublin and be available between 7 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night. The groups plan to continue serving food as long as a need exists, and will be serving at least 200 lunches and dinners.

To assist with relief efforts, contact Cameron McGill at 910-872-1726.
