Licensed Electrician Volunteers Needed for Disaster Response Efforts in Western NC
The Western NC Conference began to respond to the areas affected and worked with NC Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NC VOAD) groups. Early Response Teams (ERTs) helped to muck out homes and remove debris.
As the early response phase comes to a close, the Western NC Conference is now assisting with the long-term recovery phase.
Here is how you can help:
Volunteers with any level of construction experience, especially licensed electricians, are needed to help with Emergency Rapid Repair and make homes habitable for families to return home before winter. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the WNNC Conference Disaster Response Coordinator, Ben Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Support the disaster relief efforts in the Western NC Conference.
