Project Description: Volunteers will be assisting homeowners affected by Hurricane Harvey.  We’ll be tearing out damaged drywall, removing flooring, tarping roofs, and clearing debris.

Background Information: Hurricane Harvey devastated the coastal Texas area with 130 mile per hour winds and heavy rainfall. In addition to the blasting winds, experts have warned there could be up to 13 feet of storm surge and as much as 40 inches of rain in the coming days, adding more flooding.

Additional Information: Meals and sleeping quarters will be provided for overnight volunteers. Volunteers need to bring twin size air mattress or cot, linens/sleeping bag, pillow, towels and personal hygiene items. Tools will be provided, but volunteers may bring their own tool belts and small hand tools. Volunteers should dress in long pants and bring work gloves, safety glasses, and sturdy boots.  Volunteers should bring rubber boots for working in flooded areas.     https://goo.gl/y9Q56t
