Sign ups continue for “Here for Home” volunteers

To All TCNJ Faculty and Staff: 

TCNJ’s “Here for Home” Hurricane Sandy Relief Committee invites you to volunteer** your time and energy to help ReNEW JERSEY. Faculty and staff members are encouraged throughout the spring semester to accompany busloads of students to help “heal the shore” by cleaning-up and rebuilding our state. 

During Spring 2013 volunteers will travel to various shore sites on Saturday February 9, 16, 23, and March 2, 23 & 30, and April 6, 13, & 20, 2013. (Please note: March 30, 2013 is Easter weekend) 

You may travel either on a college sponsored bus (space permitting) or in your own private vehicle. Those traveling in their own car are welcome to follow the buses. Buses depart TCNJ at 8am from the BSC and return to campus at approximately 5:30pm. Volunteers will receive a brief safety training each Saturday morning immediately prior to departure.
