United Way offers Disaster Volunteer Reception Center Training

MADISON COUNTY- On Thursday, May 24 at 6:30-8:30 pm, United Way of Madison County is seeking volunteers to learn how to set up and run a Disaster Volunteer Reception Center.
When a disaster strikes our community, good people will volunteer.  However, trained volunteers are necessary to help deploy them where they are needed the most.  A disaster could happen to our community at any time. Madison County needs trained volunteers ready to provide assistance such as a Volunteer Reception Center, known as a VRC, in case of a large disaster. VRC volunteers work registration, logistics, and phones to help keep volunteer recovery efforts organized and the most efficient.
This one-night training will be held on Thursday, May 24, 6:30-8:30 pm at the Aletheia Fellowship & Ministry Center, 2505 Faith Drive, Anderson.  Register online in advance at www.unitedwaymadisonco.org/ vrcvolunteer.  Contact Kim at 765-608-3067 or k.hatfield@unitedwaymadisonco. org for more details.
United Way of Madison County is currently the lead organization for the Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) for Madison County.
