As Hurricane Gustav approaches landfall, AmeriCorps Alums is communicating with our official disaster response partner, Hands On New Orleans- which is working diligently with local and state agencies to prepare and ensure for a coordinated immediate response. Donations of funds to operate a volunteer reception center and to deploy an early responder team to meet immediate needs are necessary at this time; to donate funds click here. To donate goods or products click here. At this time spontaneous volunteers are not needed. If you would like to sign up to receive updates on volunteer opportunities as they become available please click here.
Please stay tuned for updates as AmeriCorps Alums will make them available as they become available to us.
