Default Volunteer Help Needed; We Can Help

With the hurricane/rain disaster in North Carolina happening now, I would like to encourage all of my Class B friends, especially those that are retired, to get involved with a volunteer organization to help with disaster relief or some other kind of community help, either in NC or closer to where you live. Being mobile and self sufficient we can be a great help to communities suffering. We are involved with our church denomination's disaster relief ministry and have helped in numerous flood disasters over the years. It is best to have some training and credentials to help in a disaster area, but there are ways non-trained volunteers are able to help. Those of us that can afford the RV lifestyle have been blessed and we should give back to help those in need. So check with your church or faith based organization (Samaritans Purse, Operation Blessing, ...), the Red Cross, Team Rubicon (active and non-active military), Habitat for Humanity..... The list goes on and on. And there are great needs for non-construction areas as well: administration, food prep and deliver, child care, gophers (to pick up and deliver stuff), etc. There is a job for any skill or even those that feel they have no skills. Don’t get discouraged when you try to volunteer because sometimes the help organizations are not as “organized” as they could or should be. Be understanding and flexible. This isn’t in the Bible but it is good advice: Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape. I apologize if I sound preachy here but there are so many that really need our help and we can help
them. I can guarantee that you will be blessed as well; we always have been.
