Donate Time and Energy

Your time and effort will be invaluable in this recovery effort. Over 40,000 homes were destroyed by flooding, and many organizations are in need of volunteers to gut and clean houses.

You can also contribute in other ways like distributing food and material goods, donating blood or volunteering at a shelter.
