Share this: @yourunitedway to activate volunteer coordination and mobilization point at its #DaytonaBeach offices tomorrow at 9am. #Irma
By: United Way Volusia-Flagler Counites
Volunteers and groups will meet at the United Way offices located at 3747 W. International Speedway Blvd.
in Daytona Beach to receive specific assignments and will then deploy as a group to the assigned worksite.
All projects will be in the Volusia or Flagler communities. Volunteers are asked to bring any debris or clean up equipment that they might have including yard gloves, shears, and trash bags.
More than 30 individual projects have already been reported that need assistance with debris cleanup and other Hurricane related needs. Additionally, many nonprofits were flooded or experienced damage from Hurricane Irma which has resulted in a delay in services.
As part of relief efforts, the United Way participates in various disaster preparedness groups namely as a volunteer coordinator. More than 50 individuals and teams have already signed up to serve, but more volunteers are needed to address the widespread damage to the community. Any individuals or groups interested in serving their community should contact Francine Martin, volunteer center coordinator at (386) 275-1948.
