Boone, NC, May 22, 2020

Less than 24 hours after Michigan's Titabawassee River crested at a historic level of 35 feet, Samartian's Purse disaster response specialists were on the ground, working alongside church partners and local government officials to determine the areas of greatest need.  Days of heavy rainfall satuated the are and caused two dams along the river to fail-displacing thousands of Midland area families.  A Disaster Relief Unit, a tractor-trailer stocked with supplies, is on the way and will serve as the base of operations, equipping Samaritan's Purse volunteers from the local region to provide immediate relief to impacted families.
