Commission Connects Katrina Relief Volunteers

FALLON, Nev. – The Nevada Commission for National and Community Service, Inc. (NCNCS), through the Katrina Resource Center at USA Freedom Corps, provides the opportunity for Nevadans to give in any capacity to residents of communities devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

The Katrina Resource Center has the capacity to connect a cadre of volunteers from groups, businesses or organizations who wish to donate their time in communities ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. Staff at the KRC are in touch with lead disaster relief agencies in each state and have the ability to match resources to needs. In addition, the Katrina Resource Center links donors to organizations and charities accepting both monetary donations as well as donated goods and services.

More information is available at www.americorpsnevada.org or directly on the USA Freedom Corps website at www.USAFreedomCorps.gov.

NCNCS is a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging Nevadans in service and volunteerism efforts. Created by Governor’s executive order in 1994, NCNCS administers eight AmeriCorps programs and the annual Governor’s Points of Light Awards. This year, 186 AmeriCorps members will assist communities in meeting critical, unmet educational, environmental, public safety, and human service needs while receiving a modest living stipend and education award.
