Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief

On May 7, 1998 a tornado swept through Edgefield County destroying numerous homes and property.  Disaster Relief teams and our men spent several weeks helping families cut up downed trees and clean up debris on their property.  It was through this experience that God lead Sweetwater to become involved with the South Carolina Disaster Relief Unit and form a Chainsaw Team.  Since then we have added a Childcare Unit and a Mud-out Unit.  When a disaster strikes, the South Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief Group contacts us, and our teams respond to the needed region.
