Disaster volunteering overview offered
Plan to attend. Bring a friend. Our community cannot be prepared without volunteers ready to respond after a major disaster or emergency event. Come spend one hour to find out the "menu" of volunteer options available with the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities or United Way. Choose the opportunity/organization that "fits" you best and learn the next step to get connected. Do you need a little training before a disaster strikes? Need to attend an orientation? Come find out! Personal preparedness materials will also be available so your family can get prepared before spring tornado season.
When? Tuesday, March 11, 9:30-10:30am -or- 5:30-6:30pm (identical sessions)
Where? United Way of Marathon County, 705 S. 24th Ave., Ste. 400B, Wausau
What? Representatives from organizations active in disasters that use volunteers will make brief presentations. Connect and learn how to be ready to respond. Pick up disaster preparedness materials to have the tools in hand to protect your family.
Help ensure that if a tornado or other disaster strikes locally, our community will be prepared. Registration encouraged but not required. Please call Volunteer Connection at 715-298-5722 to indicate how many will be attending the disaster overview with you.
Can't attend on the 11th? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you information electronically after the event.
This Disaster Overview Event is sponsored by United Way Volunteer Connection and United Way RSVP (55+ volunteering). It was planned under the direction of Marathon County Emergency Management to inform citizens about available options and the necessary steps to prepare to volunteer after a disaster. This event is coordinated as the March RSVP Coffee Hour, a monthly event to introduce volunteers of all ages about unique volunteer opportunities at local agencies.
