Volunteer to assist with Hurricane Matthew relief

October 10, 2016

United Way of Northeast Florida has partnered with the American Red Cross Northeast Florida Chapter and HandsOn Jacksonville to provide information on the most critical volunteer needs.  Volunteer needs will change throughout the recovery process, with the first 48-72 hours focused on clean-up and assessment by first responders. We encourage anyone looking for volunteer opportunities to please visit HandsOn Jacksonville’s website for the most updated information.

Some helpful tips for interested volunteers:

  1. It’s important for your safety and those around you to engage in safe volunteer opportunities and never arrive on a scene without proper training by an official disaster response organization.
  2. Please register your volunteer interest with local agencies.
  3. Please refrain from bringing donations such as clothing, food or supplies unless requested.
