In North Carolina, volunteers restore hurricane survivor to her home

“If it wasn’t for God and you people, I wouldn’t be in my house tonight.” That’s how Josephine Henry described the situation as a crowd joined her recently – before the COVID-19 crisis – to dedicate her restored home in Wilmington, N.C. Hurricane Florence had torn the roof off, but now it was fixed, thanks to One Great Hour of Sharing donations and volunteer work by United Church of Christ members and others.
