Helping Those in Need
The Greater Salt Lake Area Chapter responded to a fire on Wednesday, December 10th in Salt Lake that burned 4 people out of their home. The disaster volunteers helped the individuals with immediate essential needs like clothing, food and shelter. Ironically, while these volunteers were running to a fire to help people, other volunteers were delivering thank you cards and poinsettia plants (donated by Smith’s) to the Chapter’s top 100 donors. Those people fund and support the Chapter efforts and help make it possible for us to respond to people in disasters and help prepare our community for disasters and emergencies!
