Want to Help With Hurricane Harvey Efforts? Here's How

Posted on Aug 31 2017

There's a long way to recovery after Hurricane Havey's extensive damage in Texas, Louisiana, and beyond. Many people are in need of financial help, and in need of help for cleanup and restoration.
Volunteer by giving your time and experience. Here's some ways you can help:

Have you taken ACS disaster response training in donations operations or crisis intervention, or have feet-on-the-ground experience in an ACS warehouse environment?  If so, consider the following:

  1. Are you willing to serve for a minimum of one week?
  2. How long?
  3. When are you available?  Note:  Teams are being scheduled for weeks and months ahead.

To volunteer or seek additional information on how you can help, contact Jessica Anzai at 951-509-2253.

The American Red Cross is also seeking volunteers, especially those with training from the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF). These are trained to provide psychological support in the midst and aftermath of traumatic situations, both for victims and relief workers. For more information about this need, make application with the Red Cross.
