DRT WAREHOUSE EVENT

This year has been hard for all of us, but particularly for Mark and Laura Cremeans as they have been going through Laura’s cancer treatments, opening the thrift store, plus all the ongoing upkeep and maintenance of the vehicles and equipment to be ready for upcoming disasters.  They are in desperate need of some relief!  We are contacting recent group leaders, coordinators and others who have assisted at disaster sites to see if you might be able to help them out by coming and/or bringing a group.

Volunteer Coordinators are hosting 4 weeks specifically devoted to assisting them with various projects at the Warehouse location.  Dates are Friday, May 21 through Monday, June 21.  (Other dates may be accommodated as well but we are specifically staffing for these.)  Jobs include painting and maintenance on property, inventory of donated items in warehouse, sorting and cleaning donated items for the thrift store.  We will have a variety of jobs suitable for adults, and high school or college age groups.  Be sure to sign up individually.  Following your registration, you will receive confirmation by e-mail.

For additional information, you may contact Karen Kofahl by email or text at 214-734-9647.  Or contact DRT through the website.  We hope you can come!

Ongoing work at the DRT Warehouse

When DRT is not actively working at a disaster site there is work to be done at the DRT Warehouse in Tipp City, OH.  Check the "Volunteer Signup" page to see if we are currently taking applications for work at the Warehouse. If "DRT Warehouse" is not shown in the drop-down box it means we are NOT currently accepting volunteers at the warehouse.

If "DRT Warehouse" is shown on the drop-down, please select DRT Warehouse for your work location.  Please make sure each person in your group registers so we know how many volunteers we will have.

If you are not able to come and help physically, please pray about helping us financially.
