TRAINED VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED immediately for early response efforts in disaster relief. Tasks include, but are not limited to, helping sort through salvaged belongings, removing debris, removing dry wall and insulation and pulling up flooring. Most importantly, team members are needed to just be there, to love and listen to those who have lost so much. Because the immediate need for trained volunteers is great, an Early Response Team training opportunity has been scheduled for Saturday, November 5th from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. in Ruston at Trinity United Methodist Church. Go to https://louisi- ana-reg.brtapp.com/ERTTraining to register.
