As you may be aware, Hurricane Henri has made its way up the east coast over the past week, leaving a trail of flooding and destruction. As a result, many in Henri's path will need disaster assistance. One way you can help is by volunteering to be a Crisis Cleanup phone volunteer.
Crisis Cleanup has opened a hotline that allows survivors of Hurricane Henri to call and register the damage they sustained and request assistance with addressing it. Phone volunteers are the first line of responders who lend an ear and record their needs. This vital work helps organize information that is provided to relief organizations and disaster teams, allowing them to reach the survivors and meet their needs much quicker.
Phone volunteering is a great COVID-safe way to do meaningful service and training will be provided. If you have a phone and a computer with internet access, you can participate in the important mission opportunity from the comfort of your home.
Contact Doug Hoy, Conference Disaster Response Coordinator, if you are interested in serving; call (717) 766-7441, extension 3402, or email - firstname.lastname@example.org and included "Crisis Cleanup" in the subject line.
