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.
