Reach Out WorldWide has sent a team to assist homeowners and residents with clean up efforts after record flooding has inundated the mid-south. After a flood overwhelms a home, residents are often left with nothing. All of their belongings are contaminated, mold begins growing everywhere, and the bones of the home begin rotting. For most, the scene is impossible; it’s too intimidating to even know where to start. That’s where ROWW comes in. We help remove the home’s ruined contents, help sort what is salvageable, remove flooring, drywall, and all flood-damaged contents so that the drying process begins as quickly as possible and mold is abated. Typically, because of the severe damage and risk of mold, homes are required to be taken down all the way to the studs. Once the “muck and gut” is complete, the rebuilding process can begin. Your donation will help equip our team of qualified volunteers with the tools and resources we need to muck and gut flood damaged homes and get residents started on their path to recovery. Even $1 makes a difference.
“We were all told it was a 100-year flood and it won’t happen again,” says Nelda Cooper, another flood victim. Inside her house the floodwaters reached 4 1/2 feet.
“It’s devastating,” she says, adding that there are a lot of elderly people in the neighborhood. “When their insurance tripled, they had no other option but to drop it,” she says.
Now, many people are left wondering how to move forward.
Donate today to help victims like Mrs. Cooper get back in their homes.
On December 1, just two days after a fire ripped through the Great Smoky Mountains, Reach Out WorldWide was on the ground in eastern Tennessee.
This deployment was ROWW’s first response to a large-scale fire; a fire that left nearly 20,000 acres burned, over 2,000 structures damaged or destroyed, 175 people injured and at least 14 dead. Two juveniles have been charged with aggravated arson.
ROWW was among the first NGOs to arrive on scene and immediately went to work by assisting the local government to set up a volunteer coordination center and assess the damage with the local fire department as soon as the gates were opened. Reach Out WorldWide, partnered with and All Hands Volunteers, were the lead VOAD teams instrumental in fast tracking the opening of Gatlinburg to additional volunteers.
