to Assist with Cleanup Efforts
I hope all my City of Titusville friends made it through the storm unscathed! Just a reminder that UW is coordinating trained volunteers to help people that need it with disaster cleanup. If you know of anyone who is struggling with downed trees or de-mucking, please have them call 2-1-1! I've copied a press release below additional information; please share the news...
Call 2-1-1 for assistance
United Way of Brevard is coordinating disaster trained volunteers to help community members needing assistance securing tarps, removal of trees or other debris, muck clean up or minor home repairs. To request help simply call 2-1-1, let them know where you live and what kind of assistance you may need.
United Way is working with groups like the United Methodist Disaster Response Team, Baptist Disaster Relief, the Latter Day Saints as well as locally trained United Way volunteers who can come out and provide immediate help as well assess the damage and determine if long-term case management is necessary.
Disaster Preparedness and Response is part of United Way's support of the Brevard County Emergency Operations Center. This partnership began during the 2004 hurricane season when United Way quickly shifted into action. We addressed needs such as bolstering staffing at 2-1-1 Brevard, helping staff water and ice distribution sites and addressing long-term recovery needs.
Having the flexibility to respond when needed is another way our United Way strengthens our community.
