Hello DR Volunteers-
Thanks to everyone who has assisted with tornado cleanup in Townsend, Delaware these past several weeks! Thanks to your efforts, we're down to the last few jobs; all the critical/hazardous work has been completed. The elderly households we've been helping are very appreciative of all that our volunteers have done.
We think we can finish the work in the next 2-3 Saturdays: October 10, 17 and 24.
We need chainsaw operators as well as "general workers" who can lop small branches and drag debris.
For more information and to sign up to serve, log into your account at https://md.disasterreliefonline.com and click on "Upcoming Deployments" in the blue ribbon at the top of the page.
Workdays are open to any DR volunteer; you don’t have to be specifically trained in recovery operations. If you have a friend who might be interested in DR, invite them along to get a taste of DR work. If you live within an hour-and-a-half drive of Townsend, DE, please consider serving for a day—some folks have been commuting much farther and they need a rest. Once you check in for a specific date, you’ll receive additional information.If you cannot serve at this time, please pray for the safety of the volunteers, for the homeowners we are assisting, and for our ministry with them.
COVID note: we will be following CDC best practices as much as possible. DO NOT DEPLOY if you are sick, if someone in your household is sick, if you’ve been exposed to COVID in the past 14 days or if someone in your household has been exposed to COVID in the past 14 days.
