ABMEN NYS — DISASTER RELIEF EFFORT FOR SANDY
From American Baptist Men NYS Disaster Relief
A disaster relief trip for victims of Super storm Sandy is planned with departure from two places in the state on Sunday, November 25. At this time our work site has not yet been determined. We are still getting information. Here are the two departure/meeting places:
- First Baptist Church, Clifton Park (Capital Area) at 2 PM. Contact person is Art Sabourin, phone: 518-727-4851 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- First Baptist Church, Penn Yan (Finger Lakes) at 2PM. Contact person is John R. Tharp, phone: 315-536-8490 or email: email@example.com
It is important to have an accurate count for transportation and lodging. Arrangements can be made to meet or pick up people who live south of I-90. You will need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel and wash cloth, and personal items. We will be working outside so prepare for cold/wet weather. We will be clearing fallen trees for which we have some equipment. If you desire, you may bring your own equipment. Those who operate chain saws will be expected to wear chaps and a helmet.
