In response to the effects of Hurricane Matthew, the America Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) is coordinating with emergency management and non-profit partners.
Here are three ways to learn more and help:
1. Sign up at the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) website to be notified when they issue a call-for-volunteers: http://alanaid.org/how-to-help/offerinkind/
2. Follow ALAN on Twitter at @ALANaid
3. Check out this site, where ALAN’s logistics needs will be posted, once they are identified: http://alanaid.org/logistics-map
Your assistance will make a huge difference to those impacted by this storm. Typically, as much as 80 percent of disaster recovery expenditures go toward transporting, warehousing, and distributing goods and services to affected communities. That’s why material handling and supply chain resources and expertise can make a critical difference during and after disasters.
In case you’re not familiar with ALAN, it is a nationwide non-profit organization that enables businesses to support disaster relief in ways that highlight their strengths and engage their business interests.
