Recovers powers #BolesFire recovery
Last week, the city of Weed, CA was devastated by a fire that destroyed 110 homes and forced the evacuation of nearly 2,000 residents. To help organize the city’s recovery efforts, the site Weed.Recovers.org has been adopted by the local organizations and government, serving as the central, online hub where residents can offer and request help.
After every emergency (fire, hurricane, terrorist attack, etc.), there will be in-kind donations such as clothing, food, and supplies. Without an effective donation management system, making efficient use of these items becomes a logistical nightmare. And, unfortunately, a warehouse full of unused clothing and supplies is an all too common scene in disaster recovery.
