Are you interested in helping your neighbors get back on their feet after a disaster? When a disaster strikes, families often need help removing debris, tearing down water soaked walls, or ripping out buckled floors. In the event of a disaster in your greater community, IOCC will reach out to you to join one of our Emergency Action Teams. If you are willing to travel to a disaster affected area that is not in your greater community, please let us know that as well.

Requirements:
You don’t need to be skilled – just energetic!
You must be 18 years old or older to volunteer, but 16 and 17 year olds may volunteer if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Expectations:
Be able to deploy to a disaster affected area on short notice.
You must provide your own transportation to/from the Emergency Action Team location.

Deployment Opportunity – Baltimore, Maryland Flood Response:
We plan on starting to clean up homes on Wednesday, June 6, and anticipate working through the end of June. We are only accepting local day volunteers. There is no cost, we just ask you to come ready to work and bring a lunch. IOCC will provide water and other beverages to keep you hydrated. Once you register by clicking the button below and we see your availability we will contact you.
