Jan 4, 2021 COVID-19 Update
Project 1 in Bayboro, NC opened in Sept 2020 to continue Hurricane Florence rebuilding. The current plan is for volunteers to continue work on this site through the end of March 2021 as the COVID environment will allow. This will be the only BDM Rebuild site open during this time.
Project 2 in Dayton, OH began work in Mid-July 2020 on the recovery from the 2019 Memorial Day tornadoes that hit the Miami Valley area. This site will be paused until April 2021 when it will restart as the only BDM Rebuilding site open until circumstances will allow that to change.
All current and future volunteer opportunities with BDM require new safety protocol and consent forms beyond what was previously in place as we strive to provide safe volunteer opportunities in this COVID-19 environment. Specific COVID-19 safety protocols are in place and all volunteers will be expected to follow them in order to serve.
All of the dates named for future volunteers are subject to change depending on CDC guidance, restrictions from local officials in the project site areas and other states, and the local BDM partners in those areas being willing to accept volunteers. We are in close contact with these partners while monitoring when it will be acceptable to send volunteers without imposing any health concerns for our volunteers, the host community and most importantly the homeowners. If any further extension of these dates needs to be made in the coming weeks or months, it will be announced first with the groups and leaders on the schedule, and then publicly.
These schedules will be updated as decisions are made in the coming weeks and months.
