Cleanup Branford: Who Needs Help, and Who is Willing to Help?

Do you want to volunteer to help with Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts? Do you need help cleaning up or know someone who does? Connect with each other here.

Here at Patch, an integral part of our mission is to connect local volunteers with local volunteer opportunities. 

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there's plenty of folks who need help out there ... perhaps an elderly neighbor needs help cleaning up his yard, or a local shelter needs staffers, or an environmental group needs extra pairs of hands to remove debris and seaweed from the ravaged beaches.

So we'd like to provide this space for you to help each other connect and we've also created a Facebook Page, Cleanup Branford, where you can talk to your neighbors about Sandy cleanup.


"Like" our Cleanup Branford Facebook Page and Branford Patch on Facebook and Twitter.


Groups who are doing clean-up or outreach, let people know. If you want to volunteer, tell us about any special skills or equipment you have (got a chainsaw?).

One reminder: Don't put sensitive information such as addresses and phone numbers in the comments unless you're comfortable with it being public.

The need to be careful with chainsaws goes without saying, but please be extra careful working with downed trees having unsevered roots. As the upper branches are cut, the tension of the roots can pull up the remaining section of trunk without warning. After Irene, a CT man being a nice neighbor was thrown more than 30 feet because of this phenomenon. Being severely injured, he is now in assisted living.
