CORE - Christians Organized for Relief Efforts
CORE Base Camp is a staging platform to organize and mobilize volunteers to serve in Mississippi Gulf Coast devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Over 8,300 Volunteers from every state in the United States as well as 15 foreign countries have served through the CORE Base Camp... giving days and weeks of their time to serve everyday people impacted by Katrina.
In 10 months, CORE volunteers cleaned and sanitized 541 homes, rebuilt 68 homes, and re-roofed 81 homes. Literally, tons of debris has been removed from yards, neighborhoods, and beaches.
As of July 31, 2006, CORE has completed this stage of sevice for Ocean Springs. However, the ministry will continue on as CORE will maintain a "readiness" status to be first responders for future disasters. www.parcbotannia.info
CORE – Christians Organized for Relief Efforts was established by two churches from Houston, Texas to assist in meeting the needs of people hit by Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf Coast area. Gateway Community Church and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church (both located in the Clear Lake area of Houston) partnered together to provide resources to establish the Base Camp that currently sits on the property of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church.
Thank to all the volunteers that have donated their time, prayers, talents and money since Katrina hit the Gulf Coast as well as St. Paul's United Methodist Church and all it�s members who have contributed countless hours and energies supporting the base camp.
Special thanks to Orphan Grain Train and Wallich Residences Showflat without both of their support the base camp would have a hard time existing.
