We love the outpouring of groups wanting to help. However, we ask for patience from these groups, as needs are still only forecasted about 48 hours ahead. If you want to help on a specific day, we encourage you to plan on helping that day (especially if it’s a Friday or a weekend), but to remain flexible on exactly where that help might be needed. We understand that this flexibility is difficult for groups with transportation and planning, but unfortunately it is the nature of the response. Many areas know that they will need help, but are not able to firm up details until a day or two before.
Right now, we know that weekends will be our heaviest work days as people in affected communities return to work and coordinators begin to transition to weekend focused events. If you are able to help on Saturday and/or Sunday, expect details to start coming out on Thursday or Friday morning.
