BWB’s Priorities and Strategy Post-Disaster

BWB’s priority is to find places where our volunteer efforts can build capacity in the region for the relief effort and fill in the gaps of the federal response.  We typically search for schools that need help cleaning up so they can invite their students back and quickly create a sense of normalcy for the children. We also look for any community centers or churches who need help cleaning up so that they can better serve the needs of the community at this crucial time. Frequently, there are isolated areas that do not receive support. If you are aware of any communities who are falling through the cracks, please get in touch at carmen@burnerswithoutborders.org.
