Over the next few weeks we will be doing a blog series about volunteering. After responding to numerous disasters over the past few years we have learned a thing or two about being a great volunteer. We have seen some extraordinary volunteers, and some not so extraordinary ones. In this series we will talk about how you can become an extraordinary volunteer in disaster, whether in your own back yard, or across the country. Some of the topics we will cover are:
- Volunteer- Be Flexible
- Volunteer- Donate to the Need
- Volunteer-Local Needs Vs. Personal Desire
- Volunteer-Serve With a Smile
Be sure to join us over the next few weeks on Thursday afternoons as we talk about the characteristics that make up an extraordinary volunteer. Feel free to leave comments with questions about volunteering, or tell stories that you have experienced during a time of being a disaster volunteer.
