The second annual “Helping Is Healing” disaster relief mission trip is on its way to Fort Collins, Colo., next week to help families recover from the horrendous flooding that destroyed homes, neighborhoods, and communities last fall.
In a trip that is fully funded by Ben’s Lighthouse, 20 Newtown teen volunteers will spend the week framing, installing drywall, rebuilding decks, clearing debris, landscaping, and whatever else is needed to help some families whose homes were ravaged by the floods.

For the second consecutive summer, Ben’s Lighthouse will bring about 20 Newtown high schoolers across the country to assist the victims of a massive natural disaster. From July 27 to August 2, this volunteer group of teens and chaperones will participate in projects to clean up and rebuild from the unprecedented flooding that took at least eight lives and destroyed 2,000 homes last September.
