The best way to for us to effectively and efficiently respond to the needs of the community is to have a database of potential volunteers. By creating your volunteer profile you are taking the first step to community recovery.
At United Way of East Central Iowa our role is to help in the coordination of volunteers and help support the relief effort of State and Federal relief organizations and Linn Area Partners Active In Disaster (LAP-AID).
You do not need to have received any formal disaster response training. The abilities, skills, talents and resources that you already have are crucial in the response to the flood and our community's recovery.
