LEND A HAND
3040 Market Street, Ste. 1
Camp Hill, PA 17011

Lend A Hand was founded in 1989 following Hurricane
Hugo in South Carolina, and has since achieved national
respect and recognition.

Lend A Hand coordinates reliable transportation, labor,
housing and meals for volunteers who want to help those
who have lost homes or are suffering extraordinary
hardship as the result of a disaster.

Often one of the most valuable things Lend A Hand
volunteers can do is to listen. Victims of disaster need
to tell their stories of loss, hardship and recovery to a
sympathetic listener.

The new friends you make with other volunteers and with
those you’re serving are just one of the many benefits of
participating on a Lend A Hand work team.

Many (but not all) jobs require physical labor. Most
volunteers eagerly jump in and take on any job which needs
to be done, from demolition and rebuilding to general
disaster clean-up.

relief project please visit:

Thank you for you interest in participating in a
Lend-A-Hand volunteer disaster relief effort in
D'Iberville, Mississippi. Only 40 persons will be
scheduled each month on the chartered bus.

At the midpoint of the ride to and from Mississippi,
we stay overnight in a motel in the Knoxville,
Tennessee area. In D’Iberville, we stay in a
‘tent city’ in which all tents are air conditioned
and heated. There are hot water showers available
but only portable toilets. Meals are in a mess tent.
Volunteers are expected to assist in the meal
preparation and cleanup.

The participation fee for this program is $250 per
person. Upon receipt of a completed Application form,
the Skills Inventory, and a check for full payment,
volunteers are registered on a first come, first
served basis.

There are no buses scheduled for July and August.
Trips resume in September.

October 21 - 29, 2006
Twenty seats are guaranteed to the Derry Presbyterian
Church. Of the remaining seats, approximately 3 seats are
still available.

November 11 - 19, 2006
All seats are presently filled. A reserve list will be
maintained to provide substitutes for any cancellations.

December 9 - 17, 2006
Presently, 35 seats are available.

January 6 - 13, 2007
Presently, 20 seats are guaranteed to Elizabethtown
College. All other seats are available at this time.

If volunteer interest and adequate funds are available,
the balance of the year’s schedule is:

Feb. 17-25
March 17-25
April 14-22
May 17-27
June 2-13
