Union Carpenter Volunteers Team Up with Heart 9/11
Posted by on

Brother Manny Gines is working with Heart 9/11 to coordinate members interested in volunteering their skills to help in Puerto Rico. Following Hurricane Maria, many are living in homes that leave them exposed to rain and other elements. Volunteers will be repairing tin roofs and installing tarps on roofs for temporary protection until FEMA provides long-term repairs and support.

Volunteers will travel to Puerto Rico for a week at a time, either from Wednesday through Tuesday or Monday through Sunday. Airfare will be provided and volunteers will room in rented houses with showers and meals made provided. Typical workdays are 7a-3:30pm.

Members interested should read and complete all documents below, forwarding them to Brother Gines at mgines@nercc.org or by fax to Manny's attention at 508-752-6714. If you have any questions, please email Manny at mgines@nercc.org.
