Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN), a network of 134 churches in the Greater Austin area, will partner with Samaritan’s Purse to provide clean-up to hundreds of homes in San Marco and Wimberley, Texas affected by the recent floods that occurred after the Blanco River crested at over 41 feet.
Clean-up deployments begin on Thursday and continue through the next two weeks. It is required that all volunteers, ADRN Trained (yellow badge) or General Volunteers from the community, go through a short orientation before deployment. Samaritan’s Purse will be handing out free t-shirts. If you are an ADRN Trained volunteer, wear your yellow shirt and badge. Please bring your own lunch and water. Wear boots & jeans/long pants.
Volunteer clean-up teams will assist flood survivors by cleaning the mud out of flood houses, remove damaged sheetrock, insulation, flooring, and spraying for mold.
