Event description

Description

Assisting with recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy, which destroyed 346,000 homes and $30 billion worth of damage in New Jersey alone. One Brick will be volunteering with SBP, our non-profit partner headquartered in New Orleans, assisting with recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy. Lodging is the historic Camp Evans, now a site dedicated to volunteer housing.

The $135 fee includes lodging from Thursday, Februray 28 to Sunday, March 3. This fee also covers breakfast costs, a group pizza dinner on Friday night, logistical costs of the Event Manager and a small donation to the One Brick Builds Scholarship fund. 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. If a replacement registrant can be found for your ticket, you may be able to receive a refund based on a confirmed replacement. Please note however that NO refunds will be made for cancellations made less than 30 days before the trip as this does not give us sufficient time to find a replacement volunteer.

One Brick Remote Activity Waiver: All volunteers must complete, sign and return the waiver two weeks prior to the trip start date. Volunteers who fail to return this in time will not be authorised to participate on the trip, nor will refunds be offered. Particular attention is drawn to the "Condition of Participating paragraph".

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 as part of our scholarship fund 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.
