Responding to the windstorm

So many students have asked me, "how can I help folks after storm?" Our own campus has been devastated by the strong winds, but thanks to the able planning of Beck Taylor and his team, our clean-needs here on campus are taken care of.  So why not venture off campus to help?

The City of Spokane is seeking volunteers that would be willing to reach out to our citizens in Spokane neighborhoods that have been without power and have limited resources.

Monday November 23rd Volunteer training will be provided at the following locations:

  • 9:00 a.m.  City Hall - 808 W Spokane Falls Blvd
  • 1:00 p.m.  East Central Community Center - 500 S. Stone 

Volunteers will be provided resource information, maps, and contact information to provide to citizens in as well has helping the City and partner agencies identify households that may not be able to leave their homes and need additional assistance.

You can also volunteer on your own.

You can distribute the same information to your neighbors in need.  Please be sure to use extra caution when going into areas with fallen trees and potential downed power lines.

Visit the Volunteer Spokane website (http://www.volunteerspokane.org/windstorm2015) to download and print the following resources to distribute to affected neighborhoods:
