Volunteer teams are needed to help with home rebuild/repair in Letcher, Knott and Perry counties after the disastrous flood of July 28. Adult groups who can install roll insulation, hang sheet rock, repair/replace floor joists, and repair/replace sub-floor are most needed. There are also needs for electrical and plumbing work, and appliance and fixture installation.
Three Forks Baptist Association is affiliated with the Kentucky Baptist Convention and serves 4 counties in eastern Kentucky. This was one of the hardest hit areas during the July 28 flood.
Dates Teams are Needed: Immediately, and for the next 2-3 years. If a team can spend just a few days, the assistance given would be great and greatly appreciated
Size of Teams Needed: These don’t have to be big groups. Smaller teams with some skilled members can do a lot of what is needed.
Housing and Food Preparation: Housing is mostly “DR style” (bring your own cot/air mattress, linens, toiletries, etc. and cook for & feed your group).
Cost per Person: There is no cost.
Materials for Project: Materials will be provided, and some tools are available.
Are Background Checks of Volunteers Required for this project? No
