This past weekend 8 BonaResponds volunteers (several who had just returned from our 2 week trip to Alabama) traveled to Massachusetts to help in their tornado cleanup. The volunteers found a region that was hit hard by the tornadoes and not equipped to handle the thousands and thousands of downed trees and destroyed homes. With so much work to do, we are going back! and want you to come with us...
The trip will be from Thursday afternoon to Tuesday afternoon. We will be going to Springfield MA. It is open to everyone.
Cost is $5 for a t-shirt. Meals and a place to stay are included.
You can meet us there.
You can come for a fraction of the time.
You will have a good time.
You will make a positive difference!
What to bring?
A good attitude--by far the most important. We want hard working and flexible people who want to help. It will be fun even though it won't go as planned.
Work clothes (jeans, long sleeve tee, short sleeve tee, sweatshirt, work boots (ideally steel toed).
Gloves--leather is best IMO
Sun glasses/safety goggles
Sleeping bag (pillow if you want one--yoga block works great and is smaller)
Digital camera, charger
Toiletries etc (contacts, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc)
Granola bars etc for drive
If you are local to the Massachusetts area and can bring wheel barrels and rakes, it would be a big help.
