Volunteers often travel long distances to help with recovery and rebuilding efforts here in West Virginia.
A volunteer crew made up of people from several states teamed up in April to make major repairs on the flood-damaged home of a senior citizen in Webster County. The woman’s home sustained damage in the June 2016 flood, and recovery efforts were delayed several times.
Through the coordination of WV VOAD and the Disaster Case Management Program, volunteers from Pennsylvania and New York spent about a week on site and finished the repairs. Special thanks to Catholic Charities West Virginia for funding the project!
