Small Boat Strike Force
VECINO VERDE helps our neighbors by providing the Small Boat Strike Force. Based in Eastern North Carolina, we are constantly subjected to hurricanes and the flooding that follows. The Small Boat Strike Force is a network of every day citizens trained by local, state and federal agencies to properly respond to flooding related disasters. Members of the force are made up of everyone from experienced boaters to landlubbers just wanting to help their neighbors.
Good Neighbor Skills
VECINO VERDE helps America by teaching good neighbor skills and values. In the Bible a young scholar asks, “Who is my neighbor?” Responding to the question, Christ tells the young man that a true neighbor is one who shows mercy to others. Jesus ends His statement by telling the scholar, “Go and do likewise.” We try to follow this by helping our neighbors and community in need.
VECINO VERDE helps people by teaching outdoor and family preparedness skills. Many Americans do not know how to survive if their local supermarket shuts down. We teach anything from canning food to surviving in the outdoors.
