Trenton, NC, population 310, is a rural community outside of New Bern that experienced severe Florence flooding with more than 90 percent of homes, businesses and churches damaged. Trenton has received very little recovery assistance so far.

Stay At

First Baptist Church, New Bern. Free modest accommodations with A/C and WiFi are available at FBC New Bern or you may find other lodging on your own. You may be sharing space with other groups, but there is plenty of room. Showers are available onsite. Bring your own bedding and bath essentials including blow up mattresses, cots,  blankets, pillows, towels, etc.

The Work

Teams will help repair homes including installing drywall, sub-floors, and flooring. You are encouraged to bring your own tools and equipment trailers for this work, but not required. All skill levels welcome.


All meals are on your own, or the group may organize some. There is a kitchen available for use to cook meals and pack lunches (recommended for the mid-day meal).
