BENEFITING: JEWISH DISASTER RESPONSE CORPS INC

EVENT DATE: Jan 05, 2014

THE STORY:

Alternative Break in Oklahoma:

In January 2014, URI Hillel students will travel to Oklahoma with the Jewish Disaster Response Corps to help rebuild after the May 2013 tornadoes that killed more than thirty people and destroyed over one-thousand houses in their paths. 

About Our Trip:

Upon arriving in Oklahoma, we will meet with community members who will lead us on a survey of the tornado damage and provide a briefing on community needs. From Monday through Friday, students will assist in various stages of rebuilding, including but not limited to demolishing homes that need to be rebuilt from ground up, installing sheetrock, flooring, mudding and taping, painting, landscaping and final touch ups. The JDRC also arranges dinner discussions with tornado survivors and invites experts to discuss personal experiences, stages of disaster recovery and how one person can make a difference. Over the weekend, the JDRC partners with the local Jewish community to provide a unique Shabbat experience for the students.  

 

The Impact:

This year, JDRC volunteers will assist in the rebuilding of homes and help families get back on their feet in the six counties declared disaster zones in Oklahoma. Together, we will contribute approximately 4,000 hours of service, valued by FEMA at $20.00 per hour, saving homeowners $80,000 in building costs. 


Please help our students meet their fundraising goals to cover their program fees for this opportunity to make a difference where it counts!

Ben - I am delighted to support you in such a worthwhile activity helping others to recover from a natural disaster. Too bad you don't get to go to the Phillipines - they have better weather than Kansas at that time of year, and have the same number of members of tribe as Kansas. Good luck with your trip and your mission. 4 years ago
