Help those who are in need when disaster strikes by volunteering!

The Lenawee Community Foundation of Tecumseh, Michigan is sponsoring a Volunteer Response Center (VRC) training on December 9th, 2014.  If you can spare 6 hours of your time, when disaster strikes you could potentially help a whole community.  With the help of a Federal Homeland Security grant, we were able to use that funding to create a workshop to help those who may be affected by an unfortunate disaster.

How do Volunteer Response Centers get prepared?  VRC volunteers work with local emergency offices and spontaneous volunteers by:

  • Assisting people in finding appropriate, productive, and safe ways to volunteer.
  • Assisting nonprofit organizations in recruiting volunteers to respond to the unfortunate disaster.

Lenawee County needs a team of volunteers ready to respond when the Emergency Manager calls our VRC into action.  With your help, we can help change a life!

When: December 9, 2014
What time: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Where: LISD TECH Center – Classroom 2

A Volunteer Response Center (VRC) is one link in the chain of responses necessary for an organized disaster response.  We need to plan ahead and establish a functional

VRC in preparation for the next natural or man-made disaster in Lenawee County.

You can be part of this plan and you are needed.
