The Southeastern Vermont Irene Long Term Recovery Committee (LTRC), which serves Windham County, is recruiting volunteers to help kick off spring cleaning efforts after Tropical Storm Irene on:
Green Up Day – Saturday, May 5, from 9am-12pm
The State Irene Recovery Office has partnered with Green Up Vermont to create the Green Up to Recover initiative at the state level that Governor Shumlin announced on April 10.
The focus of Green Up Day is normally on picking up litter, and the LTRC wants to support these efforts and connect volunteers of all ages and abilities with people who are still picking up after Irene. Green Up Day is a perfect time to address these problems and mobilize volunteers to assist in Windham County .
Individuals or groups interested in helping with Irene clean-up efforts on May 5 and beyond can sign up through the United Way of Windham County at 802-257-4011 x112 or online atwww.unitedwaywindham.org.
For individuals willing to take on a leadership role in disaster-related volunteer projects, please join us for:
Site Leader Orientation
Monday, April 30
Marlboro College Graduate Center in Brattleboro
Details on the work of the LTRC and Green Up Day logistics will be provided, as well as basic volunteer management training and an opportunity to hear from volunteers who have assisted survivors of Irene.
