Teams of volunteers from the Shenandoah District will be making at several trips to Brethren Disaster Ministries project sites in 2019, helping rebuild communities damaged by hurricanes, floods and fires. All expenses are paid for the volunteer crew members, and transportation is provided. The teams generally leave on Sundays, put in a week's work and return home on Saturdays. Click on the Volunteer Form below and join our team. Note:  An originial signature is still required, but all the other information may be typed into the form and printed.
