“I am very humbled and grateful to have the opportunity be here in Staten Island or any place I have ever gone to volunteer. It’s such a privilege to be able to be apart of that and to be able to be apart of putting someones life back together.” -Bruce Jones
Bruce Jones started his journey as a volunteer with All Hands, (known as Hands On then) after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Since 2004 Bruce has traveled wherever there is an All Hands’ project, where volunteers are needed, to lead a helping hand. This includes Leogane, Haiti; Biloxi, Mississippi; and Cagayan de Oro, Philippines, just to name a few.
Bruce is now volunteering again, but this time in his home state of New York. Bruce arrived in Staten Island a week after Superstorm Sandy to assist residents during the recovery process.
When not on project leading teams of volunteers, Bruce still helps All Hands by throwing a charity golf tournament each year at Milestone Golf Club, in Whitehall, NY where he is the owner/superintendent.
All Hands Volunteers mission, to provide assistance to communities affected by natural disasters, would not be possible without the dedication of volunteers like Bruce.
