We were able to deploy for two weeks to Hammond LA to help with the hurricane Ida cleanup in January.
A team of volunteers worked hard on two workdays to cleanup tree debris here in Colorado Springs for seven families. We filled Don and our dump trailers with seven very full loads of tree debris and Rocky Top Resources provided the dump site.
Volunteer Opportunity – Marshall Fire
We are planning on heading up to Boulder on Friday afternoon and to start leading teams for Samaritan’s Purse (SP) Saturday morning. The current plan is for Byron to be there for at least a week. SP is working hard to close out the remaining work orders and is hoping to be done by mid-month.
We just spoke with the on-site Project Manager. He said that Samaritan’s Purse is taking overnight volunteers in Boulder.
