Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Catholic Charities of Ocean County NJ provides assistance and outreach to the most vulnerable in our county. Our programs include a Food/Housewares/Clothing Pantry in Lakewood NJ, Domestic Violence Services, Counseling, Housing assistance, Immigration Services, and a Minor Home Repair Service for Seniors and handicapped individuals.
I have been volunteering with this organization since June 2015. I am NOT a handyman, just "handy". Anyone with the will to assist seniors in their homes can do the repairs we perform. Many times we get requests to just change some light bulbs... You don't want 85 year old ladies climbing up a ladder!!! The reward for me is how thankful the clients are. Many of them are home bound and a visit from our volunteers is a highlight to their day. If you are a DOER and want to make an elderly person happy, this is the volunteer position for YOU!!!
