Community Support for Displaced Families and Pets
As an example: Good Morning America reports that as of Tuesday, August 15th, 2023, Deadly wildfires on Maui have forced thousands of local residents and visitors to evacuate the area in search of shelter, food, water and other basic resources. Landowners can positively impact affected communities by collaborating with nonprofit groups, such as, Maui Strong – public response has been an overwhelming support for displaced families.
Due to an unprecedented wildfire season in places that are normally considered safe, communities are needing thousands of volunteers to care for displaced families. It’s never been more true that, “this is a marathon ‒ not a sprint”. From East Coast to West Coast, including Hawaii, Canada, Alaska and Puerto Rico, communities in the midst of disaster are holding hands across the Americas ‒ coming together to support each other.
Volunteers are needed now and in the coming weeks and months to facilitate with disaster response, relief and recovery efforts. Following the unparalleled devastation caused by so many devastating wildfires, communities are ‘thinking outside the box’ and coming up with solutions to provide ongoing support and shelter for displaced families impacted in their neighborhoods.
In order to lend support during these unprecedented times, many landowners may be positioned to offer short-term shelter by linking up with community organizations who may be doing community outreach by offering disaster relief funds through generous donations, grants and other financial support for displaced families and pets.
