Volunteer Florida asking for volunteers to help assist after Hurricane Michael
FLORIDA (WEAR) —
Volunteer Florida has established resources for individuals and groups who would like to support Floridians affected by Hurricane Michael.
Those interested in volunteering can visit VolunteerFlorida.org and register on the volunteer database.
As disaster response organizations like the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army evaluate their needs and asses their resources, qualified volunteers will be contacted.
The Salvation Army is working with state and local emergency management throughout the Florida Panhandle.
The Salvation Army has established a command center in Tampa and is prepared to mobilize incident management teams to the Florida Panhandle to serve impacted areas after the storm makes landfall.
Personnel and mobile feeding units are ready to move in. The Salvation Army's mobile feeding units can serve 500-1,500 meals per day.
Red Cross is bringing in 500 disaster relief workers to shelter and feed at sites in affected counties.
