July 7, 2018
We are looking for people interested in volunteering for disaster relief work in Puerto Rico in the next 2-3 months.
Yes, this is in response to last year’s Hurricane Maria!
At this point, we are trying to get a sense of people’s interest and availability.
Even a small team can be a big help and a big encouragement. Click here to read about the team of four that traveled to Puerto Rico for a short time in May. Their service was greatly appreciated by our OPC families in Puerto Rico, and the visit was enjoyed by all.
Volunteer service in Puerto Rico will include manual labor requiring varying degrees of skill, and perhaps helping the OPC churches there with community outreach.
Please contact OPCDisasterResponse@opc.org to let us know of your interest. Thank you.
