The following is from St. Mark's United Methodist Church:
St. Mark’s United Methodist Church is designated as an Emergency Response Team staging and coordination center. This means that St. Mark’s houses, equips and coordinates ERT’s who visit and assist at the homes of survivors of Super Storm Sandy.
This effort is coordinated through the United Methodist Committee on Relief in conjunction with United Methodist Volunteers in Mission. At this time we are reaching out to congregants, family, and community friends who need assistance with after storm clean up.
Our teams are not authorized to do technical repairs, rather we can remove debris, clean, remove dry wall, tarp, nail up plywood and other simple tasks to allow the home to be prepared for restoration. We also may be able to assist in obtaining more specialized assistance such as electrical and plumbing work.
If you, your family, neighbor or friend is in need of such service or if you would like to volunteer to be an Emergency Response Team member, please contact our church office as per the below information. Please provide name, address, phone number and email if available.
Please understand that response may take several days as we endeavor to put a team in place.
