Event Details

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Assisting with recovery efforts following Hurricane Joaquin, which flooded 36 of South Carolina’s 46 counties, One Brick will be volunteering with SBP - our non-profit partner headquartered in New Orleans. Lodging is in a Day’s Inn, minutes from downtown Columbia and equally close to the worksites.

The $170 fee includes lodging from Thursday, November 30 to Sunday, December 3, in a double queen bed room with breakfast included. As only a limited number of spots are available we recommend purchasing your trip ticket right away!

Please only buy your airline ticket once the trip is confirmed with the minimum volunteer count.

Trip ticket is non-refundable. However if the trip does not fill the minimum volunteer count and One Brick must cancel the trip all trip tickets will be reimbursed.  No refunds will be made for cancelations made less than 30days before the trip as this does not give us sufficient time to find a replacement volunteer.

If you have any questions simply send details send Joe an email (josephd at onebrick.org).

Can't make it this trip, but want to help out anyway? Sponsor a volunteer by donating to our scholarship fund (above link) or make a donation of any amount to SBP.

WHAT WE'LL BE DOING:

We won't know specifically what we will be working on until we arrive. However, no building experience is necessary, as there will be on-site training and supervisors there to help guide us.  

On your first day, you will receive your assigned task on the project home, and be trained for that task. We ask that you please continue working at the same home until that stage of the project is completed. This ensures forward progress on the home without re-training volunteers daily. Typical tasks include: hanging drywall, installing flooring, painting trimwork, and mold remediation.  We may also be asked to help on gutting flooded homes.

Works day starts approx. 8:30a.m. to about 4:30 p.m.
*NOTE: the workday on Sunday will be shortened to 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. to account for return travel Sunday evening.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:

Lodging is in a Days Inn. Linens and towels are provided. Recommended packing: sun screen, mosquito repellent, dirty laundry bag, and personal toiletries. Smoking/tobacco is not permitted in the rooms.
Transportation: Volunteers must provide their own transportation. One Brick will help group volunteers together to share car rental costs.
Other items: Airline tickets are not included. Volunteers are responsible for lunch costs and other meals, entertainment not included.

How many volunteers can join us? Space is limited to 15 people. Please book early if you want to come. If there are no tickets left please email Joe josephd at onebrick.org as he will be keeping a waitlist.

Is this trip for me? One Brick disaster recovery trips are TONS of fun each year with volunteers from all over the US and sometimes beyond!  Please however consider the following before signing up:

  • Depending on the volunteer work you may need to stand or kneel for long periods of the day.

Organizer

One Brick

One Brick is a 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer organization that brings volunteers together to support other local nonprofit organizations. One Brick has adopted an innovative twist to the volunteer experience: we create a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering. After each volunteer event - which typically lasts only 3 to 4 hours - we invite volunteers to gather at a local restaurant or cafe where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting. Through our volunteer projects, we provide nonprofits with the much-needed labor to carry out their visions. At the same time we foster an environment in which our volunteers can meet new people, both socially and professionally.
