Many people in our community, and surrounding areas, were adversely affected by this weekend’s storms — Our hearts go out to you. We have partnered with the Thomas County Emergency Management Agency and All Hands Volunteers, which provides disaster relief assistance, to help. Here’s what you can do:
– Man the Volunteer Reception Center – We are in need of volunteers for Saturday, February 4 from 8am – 12:30pm and/or 12:30pm – 5pm to help greet and register volunteers, and assist All Hands team as necessary. Please call our office at 229-226-5200 or email if you can help.
