Volunteer - Ortley Clean Up!

 ,   Add to calendar
 943 Fischer Blvd Toms River NJ 08753  See map

We go to Ortley every Thursday and Friday as volunteers! We call ourselves, “Weekday Warriors”. We have been clearing out homes for people in need. Most volunteers from the original SurfRiders volunteers! They were our original motivation. We are tying to get every home cleaned and cleared, one home at a time!       We meet us at 9 am, at the old Food Town 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! Good, strong work boots! Old ones even better! 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!   I have permits so drag : ) or bring a friend!       Thank you and see you!*
