Special Announcement from Volunteer East Tennessee Locked Topic 0 T. Mensch   Volunteer East Tennessee is currently working with local, state, and national groups to identify resources needed for our friends and neighbors affected by recent flooding in our region.  Lead agencies are taking a measured approach, due in part to the weather forecast this weekend and data needs for a FEMA declaration.  Right now, the only specific volunteer need is for data entry, in order to map what type of assistance is needed. As the region's sole, dedicated volunteer center, we are committed to fulfilling our role and mobilizing volunteers for our neighbors and the nonprofits that will serve them during this time.   If you know of nonprofit or community organizations in East Tennessee that have started or will need volunteers for direct service flood-related work, we are offering them complimentary use of our platform for the duration of their projects.  Additionally, we will connect them with our active disaster volunteers list (13,000+) for recruiting purposes.  Anyone interested can contact Executive Director Alyson Gallaher directly at agallaher@volunteeretn.org.
