DAT Team Wins Governor's Award

Ron and Marilyn Flock, Jon Bachelder, Paul Huebner, Kathy and Jerry Constantino, and Cynthia Freeman. Terry McDaniel, Jim Johnson and Jason Imfeld are also on this dedicated team.

Your dedication sets an impressive standard for volunteer service.

The Moore County Disaster Action Team were presented the Governor’s Award for Volunteer Service in the Group/Team category on April 16 at the historic courthouse in Carthage. In a letter praising the team, Governor Pat McCrory states “your dedication sets an impressive standard for volunteer service. I hope that your success will inspire more volunteer enthusiasm.”

The team are on a rotating schedule with 2-week assignments. Whenever called 24/7 they respond to the scene and provide emergency assistance for lodging, food, clothing and other referrals; the emotional support is as important to the client’s recovery as the financial assistance.
