Volunteers are needed for a Faith Works Coalition disaster relief mission to Ocracoke Island to assist in the recovery from last fall’s Hurricane Dorian. No experience is needed. Faith Works will provide project managers for supervision.
When: Monday May 11-Friday May 15. Option to arrive Sunday in order to start work early Monday morning.
What: Rebuilding damaged homes, primarily drywall, painting, flooring, carpentry and perhaps roofing. Also, licensed electricians are urgently needed.
Who: Local coordination is provided by United Methodist Commission on Relief (UMCOR)
Shorter stay: Volunteers have the option to shorten their stay on Ocracoke and just work part of the week.
Important! The UMCOR project manager suggests that this mission trip is not for anyone unable to easily climb stairs or with any serious underlying medical condition. It is a $10,000 helicopter ride from Ocracoke to a mainland hospital.
