One said earlier in the week that they toured the country for a while in their RV going coast to coast. Volunteering with NOMADS gave them purpose. In our case, it has become more of a calling too.
At our site here in Galveston, we have nine couples working on three houses.
At each job site/project we bring our own tools and use some that others have brought. Some people have a whole pick up truck full of tools and equipment while some don't have any tools. We have drills, a Skil saw, hammers, a couple of tool belts, clamps, paint brushes...
NOMADS is always looking for new volunteers. They have over 1000 members, but the need is great. Yesterday's news of the flooding in the Northeast and in the Midwest made me think of all those homes that will need to be repaired.
The government can't do it all. Here in Galveston, over 2000 homes remain on the list to be repaired from the damage done during Hurricane Ike in 2008. Building and construction here in Galveston is strong. Many commercial builders and volunteers like us are on the island.
If you'd like to know more, let me know or call the NOMADS office at: 1-866-466-6237. Or take a look at their website. Click here.
We'd love to see more NOMADS out here!
