Disaster Response Help Needed

I am sending this email for you to be aware of the work on one of several sites with damage from the tornadoes that struck lower New Castle County and upper Kent County. If you are available or if you have contacts that can help we are open for trained and untrained volunteers. Location and times are found below. For teams that are traveling overnight accommodation can be made for you. Please contact me as soon as you know you are in need of accommodation.

 At this time we are planning work on August 29, 2020 . Weather will have an influence on  the site. Prepare for the worst Pray for the best.  We will be working together with several other recovery groups. Further information will be sent out as it is released.

Below are forms to be filled in before arrival, and a safety briefing.

The weather may be an issue this weekend, with potential high winds and rain. If it is, there will be many more weekends to participate in this ministry. Please let me know of your interest and availability.
