For the next 3 weekends ADRN (Austin Disaster Relief Network) will continue cleanup efforts in Bastrop.
And THEY NEED OUR HELP!
Our purpose will be to assist families in home site clean up, sifting & sorting debris. When clean up is finished, we (through ADRN) will present each family helped with a bible & pray with them. You do NOT need to be an ADRN trained volunteer to help with the cleanup.
Some of you have already been involved, but we are asking for everyone from ONEchapel to consider helping with this effort. We would like to raise up teams of ten people each to cleanup these devastated home sites. Wouldn’t it be amazing if ONEchapel alone was able to cleanup 5 home sites in just one day!
We are choosing the last Saturday in October, the 29th, as our volunteer cleanup date. This is the weekend of Family Sunday and what better way of celebrating family than to help those families who lost everything?
So 50 people, that’s the goal! Each team will have a team leader designated to fulfill a leadership role. The leader will hopefully be ADRN trained.
Meeting Location: Volunteers must show up by 8:30 AM, at their assigned site, to receive specific clean-up and site safety instructions, sign volunteer waiver docs and meet the team. ATTENDING THE 8:30AM VOLLUNTEER DEBRIEFING MEETING IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO WORK ON-SITE AS A VOLUNTEER.
*If you sign up to be a leader at one of the sites, your MEETING LOCATION will be at the Chestnut Square Movie Theatre (1600 Chestnut St., Bastrop) at 7:30AM. Must be ADRN trained volunteer with badge. (Please wear ADRN yellow shirt and badge, if you have them)
What to Wear: workboots or work-duty shoes, long sleeve shirt (light weight), jeans, leather gloves (NO cloth gloves), hat, sunscreen
What to Bring: lunch, water, hand sanitizer, hard hat (if you have one), M-95 (or better) breathing mask *recommended (if you have one), a few rags (to be thrown away when done)
Special Needs (if you have, Please Bring): 3 wheelbarrows per site, flat/snow shovel, hard metal rake & push broom, sledge hammer (for certain situations), & wire cutters (for certain situations).
Now go, hurry, SIGN UP and let’s show the love of Christ in a tangible way to a community that desperately needs us.
