CANCELED - Flood Relief Service Trip

Appalachian Center/Perry County
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s):
Housing Development Alliance

Event canceled- next flood relief service opportunity October 29th.


Join us for a flood relief service trip to Perry County, Kentucky in partnership with the Housing Development Alliance. The trip will involve mucking & gutting homes so that the homeowners have a cleaner slate to start again. This means: removing mud/debris from homes and crawl spaces, removing damaged materials (insulation, drywall, floor coverings, etc…). Homes will then be treated with fungicide to ensure that the home and it’s occupants will not have to deal with unnecessary moisture and mold in the long-term.


Please register for participation in the trip here: [event canceled] Volunteers will also complete and sign the waiver form which will be available to sign the morning of the trip. 


Participants should meet at the Appalachian Center at 624 Maxwelton Ct. at 7:15am on Saturday, October 15th. Volunteers should plan for to be gone for the majroity of the day returning around 7pm. 


Volunteers should wear long pants and boots (steel toe is not necessary) – long sleeves are recommended (layers) but not required. The Appalachian Center will provide transportation, snacks, and water. PPE will be provided by HDA, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own masks/gloves if they would like. Volunteers should plan to eat breakfast ahead of time bring their own lunch. Volunteers also encouraged to bring their own (filled) water bottle. Volunteers should plan to take a covid test ahead of the trip (an at home test should be sufficient) and please do not join us if you are ill. It is also highly recommended that you be sure to be up to date with your tetanus shot before going on the trip.
