Hurricane Irma smashed into Florida with the strongest winds observed over the Atlantic in the last 10 years. The result left the local communities in complete disarray and in need of help from volunteers. CC International will be on the front lines in the upcoming months, fill out a volunteer team sign up form to reserve space for your team.
CC International is currently meeting with First-Responders and Long-Term Recovery Groups to decide where volunteer teams are needed most. Volunteers teams will be in South Texas by Thanksgiving 2017 and projects will be active through at least April 2018.
CC International takes a holistic approach to community recovery. In addition to homes directly impacted by the weather, local community organizations, such as food banks and after school programs, struggle to meet the increased needs of their clients and constituents. Many of these organizations and their staff members have suffered direct impact from the flood. CC International volunteers will work to help these organizations serve their constituents and get back on their feet.
