Community Collaborations International - Flood Relief
CC International takes a holistic approach to community recovery. In addition to homes directly impacted by the storm, local community organizations, such as food banks and after school programs, struggle to meet the increased needs of their clients and constituents. Many of these organizations and their staff members have suffered direct impact from the flood. CC International volunteers will work to help these organizations serve their constituents and get back on their feet.
