And as a trained, verified Red Cross volunteer, they will ask you if you are willing to deploy to a disaster. They will transport you to the disaster, house you and feed you to provide the clients with the services the clients need to survive, short term and long term. Red Cross is going to need volunteers, who usually work 2 week shifts, for months to come. They will be providing long term mass care for a long time. Same thing with the Salvation Army and the Baptist Convention. Both groups are running giant portable kitchens that do thousands of meals per day. They also need help. All the member groups of VOAD (volunteer organizations active in disaster) are looking for more volunteers. Some of those groups are amazing, doing stuff like Muck Out, tree cutting, tarpping of roofs, providing spiritual care, providing therapy dogs, offering their airplanes to fly in volunteers and supplies. PLEASE volunteer. even if you cannot go to the disaster, you can help assemble hygiene kits and other services.
