World Renew Conducting Unmet Needs Assessments for Storm Victims | 8/14/2014
World Renew, a locally based international disaster response team, will be out in the affected portions of our community this weekend assessing residents unmet needs related to the storm.  These folks will be out in force!  They will be in green shirts with ample identification as to who they are.  They are here to help!  Also, storm affected residents have been sent a mailer indicating where natural and man-made materials may be brought for disposal.  Please keep an eye out. If you did not receive a mailer, you are not in the storm impact zone area.
