Help Sandy NJ Victims via Samaritan’s Purse

Samaritan’s Purse has set up relief bases in three counties in New Jersey to help the victims of Sandy. Volunteers and donations are welcome.

On November 1st Samaritan’s Purse began to set up at “Linwood Community Church in Linwood, North Jersey Vineyard Church in Teterboro, and The Church of Grace and Peace in Tom’s River.” The main goal is to help homeowners gain access to their homes, clear debris and prevent further damage.

Volunteers and staff work to remove trees, clean up debris in and around homes, tarp roofs and rip up damaged flooring. One of the most difficult tasks is mudouts.

Even though a home looks like it is cleared after debris is removed, when the flooring is peeled away, you often find mud underneath. Mudouts are risky because of the possibility of infection, tetanus, exposure to mold and the danger of falling debris. It is hard, tiring work. But Samaritan’s Purse has trained staff and volunteers to do the job.

Mudouts will most likely be needed in New Jersey because of the mixture of water and sand that washed up because of Sandy.

This is a time when we all need to come together to help out those affected by Sandy. Samaritan’s Purse is making a big dent in the disaster relief in New Jersey. Won’t you help?

Disclosure: This is not a compensated post. I am a supporter of Samaritan’s Purse through social media and through donations.
