BonaResponds events for next two weekends

From Notice Board:

BonaResponds events for the next two weekends!

A. This Saturday we have two jobs. 1. Taking apart a house in Gowanda. Looking to save what we can. The house was destroyed by the flood. Must be taken down. 2. Help the Cattaragus County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has asked us to help determine extend of damage in the West Valley area. The results of this will help FEMA make their decision as to whether individual home owners can get disaster assistance. This is not manual labor, but is very important.
We will leave SBU at 9:30 on Satuday.

B. Next weekend is our regularly scheduled Local Service weekend. We will be working with Villa Maria (They plan on bringing down about 50 students! We need to have more than them!!! We will work one day in Gowanda and Salamanca and then one day in Olean/Allegany/Hinsdale/Friendship.

To get these ambitious jobs done, we obviously need many volunteers. The work in Salamanca is weather dependent (Painting a house for a 80 year old through the Dept of Aging) so we will know the exact schedule only after seeing weather forecasts, but rest assured there will be work on each day!

For more information on these or other BonaResponds events see:

BonaResponds is open to everyone and we are always looking for volunteers and new leaders. You can volunteer for a part of the day or the full day. Come on out. It is great fun and you really do improve the quality of live for people.

Also follow us on twitter!

Look for a meeting next week to discuss the Local Service Weekend as well as other coming events.
