Weekday Warriors

Weekday Warrior blogging their adventures after Sandy

Went back into Ortley yesterday. Fourteen volunteers and we did gut two homes! One home was still so wet.  I know many folks have gotten their homes in order but there are still so many that dont even know there is help available.  No one should have to do this alone.  The physical support is huge but the emotional support even more important.  Folks feel better knowing they arent alone!  We did not go together as the rain and wind made it dangerous for my volunteers.  Back on Thursday!

We are going tomo, Thursday. Friday, depends on the weather. If its steady rain, We are NOT going! ty* Sandy - Weekday Warriors on Facebook* We go to Ortley every Thursday & Friday as volunteers! We call ourselves, “Weekday Warriors”. We have been clearing out homes for people in need. We are tying to get every home cleaned and cleared, one home at a time! We meet at 9 am, at the Bell Crest Plaza parking lot on Fischer Blvd, TR. (943 Fischer Boulevard Toms River, NJ 08753) Please join us! While yes, it is hard work, it is such a rewarding day. We have been clearing out homes of furniture, cabinets, sand, sheetrock and wood floors. Naturally, working as a team, a lot easier and faster! You are truly helping folks that are exhausted and overwhelmed! We work hard but we do share a few laughs! Please bring lunch. Dress in layers, as it may feel cold but as we start working, it gets warm, fast! Old, good work boots! Good work gloves, or I can supply them. Goggles, if you have them. If you have good masks please bring them. I have masks as well to share. Tools: crowbars for floors, (or whatever works best : ) small sledgehammers for walls (or whatever works best : ) I can get shovels and wheel barrels once we are in Ortley. I will bring a case of water. We start going over at 9 and we are off the Island by 3. There are port a potty’s now! So drag : ) or bring a friend! Thank you and hope to see you!* Joan* on Facebook: Sandy - Weekday Warrior
