There will be a FREE light breakfast and coffee from 8am-9am along with informational tables and FREE resources you can take with you!

This event is being organized by the Craven County Disaster Recovery Alliance. CCDRA was organized as a local long term recovery group after Hurricane Matthew. It includes representatives from local churches, local nonprofits and governmental agencies as well as representatives from statewide emergency management. While organized as a long term recovery group after a disaster situation, there was also a desire to educate churches and nonprofits on disaster preparedness. Eastern North Carolina has had its share of disasters in recent years.
