Scope of Work
There are still multiple counties that need your help repairing homes. Work may include roof and ceiling repair, drywall installation and finishing, flooring installation, and painting.
Accommodations and Meals
Because the damage is across 12 counties, where you stay will depend on which county has the greatest need at the time of your trip, as well as the size and skill set of your group. The housing will most likely be in a church with open floor space for sleeping, or some other community building. There will be restrooms, showers, and a kitchen to prepare your own meals. Some locations may provide all meals for a fee.
