All Hands Volunteers, the disaster relief organization powered by volunteers, is seeking additional hands to assist with flood recovery efforts in Denham Springs.
The nonprofit has worked on debris removal and preparation of homes for reconstruction. The organization has transitioned into the recovery phase and is now engaged in the reconstruction of 30 flood-damaged homes.
“Our aim is to provide these 30 families with a second chance and given them hope for the future," said Jess Thompson, director of U.S. Recovery for All Hands Volunteers. “But none of this will be possible without the good will of our volunteers and we would like to call on more hands to assist with these urgent recovery efforts. If you would like to have a lasting impact on the lives of these families, we urge you to contact us and become a part of our dynamic volunteer network.”
No specific skill sets or experience are required to volunteer. On-site training is provided, in addition to food and equipment on work days. Personal work boots, gloves and travel to and from the program must be covered by the volunteer.
Rebuild activities run daily from 7:45 a.m. and 5 p.m. from the organization’s base in Denham Springs.
The program in Louisiana is scheduled to run until September and requires a minimum of 30 volunteers per day.
