The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
SBP New Jersey is a long-term disaster recovery organization that helps families who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy rebuild their houses and, more importantly, their lives. These families have been unable to rebuild because of finances and in many cases have experience contractor fraud. With the help of AmeriCorps members, in-house skilled labor, and unskilled volunteers like yourself, we restore lives. Since the beginning of SBP in New Jersey we have rebuilt 50 houses, 18 so far in 2016 alone. But there is so much more work to be done. Thousands of people are still without homes. That’s where you come in. We need volunteers to help with the numerous stages of construction. Volunteering might include:
And much more!
Individuals or groups of all sizes can come and contribute. Work is safe. Sites are well equipped. And the best part is no experience is necessary! Trained site supervisors are there to help out volunteers with every part of the construction. Not only do you get to know the community and the homeowner, you leave with a meaningful experience that will stay with you for years to come. We are in need of volunteers, especially around the holidays in November and December. Please consider helping a family in need! There is no better way to celebrate the holidays. If you are able, please donate at sbpusa.org. All donations are welcome and appreciated.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you soon!
