In the wake of Hurricane Florence, we are forming a team to partner with The Cajun Army, with whom we worked to clean up after Hurricane Harvey in Texas last year. Our work will primarily involve cleaning out homes and properties that were flooded, homes where the homeowners or inhabitants do not have the means or ability to do the work themselves: those at highest risk. The work requires personal barrier protection such as tyvek suits, respirator masks, goggles, and gloves because of the risk of mold exposure. Protective clothing and safety equipment are provided and mandatory.​

Up-to-date Tetanus vaccination is required for all participants.

This trip is open to College students and young adults. Siblings who are high school upperclassmen can join the trip, too, but please note our return is 3 days after school is back in session.  ​
