Disaster Recovery Team Volunteer



8:30 AM TO 4:00 PM

Join Lakewood UMC for volunteer opportunities to work on our disaster recovery team!  We will work on one of our ‘adopted’ homes, and other locations as well, depending on how many volunteers come out to help. We meet at the church at 8:30 AM each morning and work until 3:30 – 4:00 PM. Lakewood provides lunch and drinks each day.  
We have partnered with HOPE Disaster Recovery and Houston Responds to continue to repair homes in our area. There are still over 5,000 families who are not back into their homes. 

If you are available to be a volunteer, please contact Jack Aulick at zjwa02@comcast.net or sign up using the form below.

All is Grace,
