NEW YORK-NEW JERSEY (October 29, 2012) – As hurricane Sandy bears down on the Tri-State region, World Cares Center (WCC) is coordinating unaffiliated volunteers and volunteer groups who wish to help. Unaffiliated volunteers are those who wish to help but are not part of a pre-established group ahead of time. Currently there is an urgent need for volunteers to assist Shelter Operations in New Brunswick NJ for morning shifts.
World Cares Center provides two online briefings daily, “Disaster Volunteering” and “Disaster Management for Grassroots Leaders” Both events can be accessed through the WCC website at: www.worldcares.org.
In addition, online applications, information on volunteering can be found at www.worldcares.org.
Organizations needing volunteers can access request through the “get involved” section of the website.
World Cares Center, formed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 is a critical organization for the emergency response community, providing training programs for community leaders to organize volunteers in times of crisis. WCC also trains grassroots organizations and individual citizens with specialized emergency preparedness programs for seniors and youth. WCC’s training and volunteer coordination efforts and cleanup were instrumental to the recovery from Hurricane Irene.
