Disasters bring a wave of
kind-hearted volunteers from near and far wanting to help. To harness this volunteer energy, we facilitate the coordination of spontaneous volunteers and provide the public with information on how to help.
To manage the unprecedented
number of volunteers during the historic flooding in June 2016, we worked with
partners to establish Volunteer Reception Centers in Clay, Kanawha, Greenbrier,
and Nicholas County. The centers registered more than 3,900 volunteers,
referring them to local agencies to help with relief efforts.
