 The City of Bastrop/Americorps:  a great need for volunteers to clean up debris/rubble from homes that were destroyed by the fire a few weeks ago.  They have 200+ families that have requested for clean-up assistance (these families have no insurance coverage for clean-up).  Last week, ADRN sent 125+ volunteers, who completely cleaned up 12 homes (10 volunteers per home). This group had an amazing time meeting with families, helping them get through this tough time by cleaning up their home.  We saw tears of sadness & joy (an volunteer found a victim’s wedding ring in the rubble)!   Will you prayerfully consider volunteering?  Visit Web site for volunteer days/dates/times.  Volunteers will essentially sift, sort and stack debris with the goal of ultimately having a clean slab for builders to rebuild the home.  For this  particular clean up job, volunteers do not need to be a registered/trained ADRN volunteer.  Please share this with co-workers, friends, church members.  Meeting Location:   Chestnut Square Movie Theater (1600 Chestnut Street – Bastrop, TX)     From there, volunteers will be deployed to several different residential sites.  Instructions will be given at 8:30AM.  Please be on timeADRN will be deploying volunteers into the field shortly after arriving.
