FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Thursday, September 26, 2013 (All day)
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has deployed more than 470 AmeriCorps and Senior Corps participants to areas devastated by massive flooding in Colorado. Three CNCS programs –AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA Corps, and Senior Corps RSVP – are involved in the effort.
As an easily deployable, highly motivated and energized corps of young people, AmeriCorps NCCC has been a vital support system for communities across America in times of natural disaster and with FEMA Corps we hope to expand our impact to all communities in these times of need. With the help of FEMA and an increase of 1,600 additional corps members we can greatly increase our level of support and strengthen the nation’s disaster response capacity.
