Event description

Description

After a major disaster occurs, the large number of spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers who converge to assist with recovery can be overwhelming to an already stressed community.

A Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) provides a place where large numbers of volunteers can be efficiently processed, documented, and referred to organizations needing their services.


Event Goals:

To test the efficacy of the local Volunteer Reception Center plan and toolkit.

To educate and enroll community partners in efforts to supprt and sustain a plan for a Volunteer Reception Center.
