The captain of the Salvation Army in Owensboro is preparing to head to the east coast to assist in Hurricane Florence recovery efforts.
Rebekah Abram is expecting to leave Sunday or Monday, and while her exact destination is unknown, she suspects she’ll be sent to the Wilmington, North Carolina area.
This isn’t her first disaster relief mission, and says each experience brings challenges and rewards.
"I think being able to go and serve individuals who are hurting, being the hands and feet of Christ to them, giving a hot meal to a child who has lost everything," Abram stated. "It seems like something small, but to them it means a lot."
