As the South East Coast area prepares for impact of Hurricane Matthew, planning is underway to respond once the storm has passed. The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) could use your help if you or your company can volunteer or donate. Among the various types of needs will be debris removal.
Here are three simple options to learn more and pitch in:
- Sign up on the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) website to be notified when they issue a call-for-volunteers: http://alanaid.org/how-to-
- Follow ALAN on Twitter at @ALANaid
- Check out this site, where ALAN’s logistics needs will be posted, once they are identified: http://alanaid.org/logistics-
In case you’re not familiar with ALAN, it is a nationwide non-profit organization that enables businesses to support disaster relief in ways that highlight their strengths and engage their business interests.
Your assistance will make a huge difference to citizens of South East states. Typically, as much as 80 percent of disaster recovery expenditures go toward transporting, warehousing, and distributing goods and services to affected communities. That’s why supply-chain resources and know-how can make a critical difference during and after disasters.
