Review for All Hands Volunteers, Mattapoisett, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

When I first signed up for All Hands, my friend asked me, "Why would you sign up for a month of not getting paid and still working"? My Only response was, "To do something bigger then myself". All Hands gave me the opportunity to see first hand both the physical and emotional effect super storm Sandy had on peoples lives in Long Beach, NY. You would think that after a year since Sandy hit that people would be back on their feet and able to move on, but even after a year, asbestos is still an issue that I personally came across multiple times within a month.
There is something indescribable about being alongside people from around the world that have all come together to help give residence of Long Island hope in reconstructing what was lost.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Being a volunteer, I was bounced around from house to house, and wasn't able to see a house from start to finish, which I would have liked to have been able to do.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
