After four months of disaster relief ministry, including Christmas and Spring Break student initiatives, Southern Baptist leaders are making preparations to welcome teams of volunteers to New York and New Jersey this summer to help homeowners continue recovering from the damage left by Super Storm Sandy
Most of the cleanup work has been completed, however there may be some tear out of flooded homes that teams could be asked to do. Other work we expect teams might take on includes: carpentry, roofing, electrical, plumbing, insulation, dry wall installation and finish, ceramic tile, laminate, and hardwood floor installation, painting.
Volunteers will be housed in large groups separated by gender. Participants must have completed at least the 7th grade. Teams must include at least one adult, 21 years or older of the same gender, for every five participants under 18. Groups interested in taking part in the Sandy Recovery Ministry should contact the coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
