Day/Local Volunteer Requirements:
Operation Blessing Teams are made up of “on-call” volunteers with general and specialized skills who join our teams in the field during times of disaster. When there is a disaster, we’ll contact you (usually via e-mail) asking if you are available. Operation Blessing will supply meals, lodging, equipment, work order coordination and more. Volunteers are only asked to cover the costs of their transportation, including to and from the job sites each day.
