The following comes from an email message that one of my students sent me. I’m posting portions of that message with permission.
Wanted to let you know that Hands On Disaster Response is deploying volunteers for three weeks to Gassville, AR to help with relief efforts there. Here is the website for more info: http://hodr.org.
This is the group [we] traveled to Peru with. Some of the most hard working (and hard playing) folks you will ever meet. If this is something you would be interested in, let me know. I am going to organize a trip over for a weekend. (about a 4 hour drive…leave on a Friday, return on a Sunday)
Since we worked so hard with some of these folks in Peru, it is really touching to have them head this way when needed. Hopefully we can have a big turn out of Memphis folks to welcome them!!
