Helping Hands International: Special Appeal for Volunteers

September 28 - October 4

Helping Hands International has made great strides in the last two weeks to respond to the S. Oregon fires and subsequent Disaster Relief needs!

A few highlights include:

  • Raised over $47k in donations from over 100 donors
  • Received, reviewed and approved approx. 410 online volunteer applications
  • Completed over 20 Food Distribution and 3 Sifting Team face to face training sessions
  • Served over 10k meals at the Jackson County Expo. via the Salvation Army Emergencies Services food trailer
  • Reached out to over 45 individual fire victims to discuss their online Victim Needs Assessment form and to schedule future Sifting Services
  • Kicked off our first week of Sifting Teams, who serve two fire victims a day, M-F, between now and the end of October (with possible extensions into December)
We are so proud of the community’s effort to respond to this crisis and it has been a privilege to serve together during this time of need!
WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS TO SCHEDULE THEMSELVES ON OUR FOOD DISTRIBUTION AND SIFTING TEAM CALENDARS. These calendars are available once you have submitted an online application and HHI Staff have sent you a confirmation email.

Your form will then be sent to HHI Staff, who will review and approve your application (assuming all is in good order) within 24 hours, and send you the necessary calendar links.
