|UPDATE-Superstorm Sandy Recovery Marches On as Winter Approaches|
District Disaster Response Coordinators in the Atlantic and New Jersey Districts of the LCMS are just now finalizing locations and plans to receive volunteers that will be deployed to help with Superstorm Sandy recovery work. LCC is serving as the registrar for the various locations and types of teams from across the country. Here is the latest news for those wishing to volunteer on the East coast.
Chainsaw Teams Needed NOW in Lenoka Harbor, New Jersey
Pastor Mark Stillman and Village Lutheran Church are welcoming chainsaw volunteer teams right now for work in the five counties surrounding Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey. They have capacity for about 20 volunteers each week supplying lodging and meals for a suggested donation of $20 per person per night. They are facing a backlog of over 700 requests for tree removal and expect the need to stretch for at least two months. Contact Dianna Bonfield at (866) 455-6466 with questions.
Atlantic and New Jersey District Accepting Volunteers in December
Final plans are being made to receive volunteers to the Atlantic District (includes New York City) and the New Jersey District. Coordinators are hoping to have all the details in place to host volunteers by the first or second week of December. Details will be shared on the LCC website as they are made available.Click here for Superstorm Sandy Volunteer Information
