Hurricane Florence: Volunteering During a Crisis

One of the most powerful testaments to the human spirit is to see how, during times of crisis, we rise up, band together and dig into the work at hand. Just a few days ago we marked the 17th anniversary of 9/11. As traumatic an experience as that was, no one can forget the sense of responsibility we all felt to one another in the days immediately following that tragedy. Witnessing the swell of requests to help, and the power of volunteerism in action, in the wake of any natural or man-made disaster is a healing thing.
