Entering into September and a new season, we are fresh on the heels of the flooding disaster in Houston and South Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida and southern states affecting so many. The climb back to normalcy will be slow, measured in months and years. Feeding America is monitoring the situation on-the-ground and coordinating with national disaster partners, Feeding Texas and Hurricane Irma relief efforts as well as impacted network members. FA’s national office contingents are in these regions now and will continue to serve as a central point of communication for all network and national donor offers of support to relieve other network staff of this coordination effort. We will continue to share the latest news through our social media as we receive updates.
The disasters are examples of the volatility in our world today. It is hard to keep track of let alone know how you should react. You may even wonder – ”Can I really make a difference?” Let me assure you the answer is yes.
