The Samaritan’s Purse Warehouse, located on 21 acres in North Wilkesboro, included 180,000 sf tilt-up warehouse with an additional 20,000 sf of two-story office space located on the front of the building. 18 bays are located at the back of the warehouse which are used to load medical equipment onto trucks to be taken to ports and shipped all over the world. The building houses inventory from World Medical Mission, the organization’s medical arm, and international disaster relief supplies, including an emergency field hospital and office space. Since there is a tributary on the eastern side of the property, the building sits slightly above ground level to comply with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) floodplain standards.
