Christ In Action is a faith-based nonprofit organization providing disaster relief in Lyon County and surrounding communities impacted by the severely bad weather during December 2021.

“If your home must be torn down and your insurance did not pay enough to move it to the edge of the road for pick up we have a solution,” according to White. “Thanks to God — Christ Tabernacle in Princeton is hosting a group called Christ In Action. They will do the demolition of your home and move it to the curb.”
