When Arkansas and surrounding states experience disasters by hurricanes, tornadoes,
floods or ice storms, the Elrod Center sends out a campus appeal for volunteers. Teams
of students, faculty and staff answer this call to go and help with the recovery efforts
in the devastated area.
Many times the team joins the Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief efforts, which give the benefit of housing, meals and qualified and trained individuals to work with. Volunteers on the Ouachita team would likely work on weekends or over school breaks because of class schedules.
