No 'Grunt Work' Disaster Responder for Knox County Emergencies
Please visit the new page to apply.
Do you have a deep desire to serve your neighbors in need when disaster strikes but can't or don't want to do the heavy lifting?
This volunteer role makes a significant impact on those affected by disasters, most of which are home fires, by responding in a moment's notice to meet their immediate needs. Ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic necessities such a roof over their head, a bed to sleep in, money for food and clothing, and medical and mental health services.
In this role, you will meet with clients on their worst day to provide comfort, hope, and resources when they need it most.
Safety First! Our need for volunteers is constant and our guidelines reflect the latest CDC safety recommendations and follow the national and local government laws. COVID-19 vaccination will be required for in-person volunteer roles beginning January 3, 2022.
