SBC disaster relief is the third larges relief agency in America. It is a group of volunteers from around PA. If needed other units from neighboring states are a phone call away. A unit can be on site within 24 hours of a call out. In large disasters often the salvation army and Red Cross use SBC D.R. feeding units to prepare food and then they distribute it to the people.
