EVERYONE IS WELCOMED TO JOIN THIS GROUP! PLEASE GO TO THE "EDIT MY PROFILE" PAGE AND CHECK THE "RVILLAGE CARES" BOX SELECTION UNDER CLUBS AND ASSOCIATIONS. YOU ARE NOT COMMITTING TO VOLUNTEERING BY DOING THIS. WE ASK YOU TO DO THIS SO WE CAN MESSAGE THOSE WHO HAVE THE BADGE WITH INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN HELP IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO SO.

This group is meant to be an information and resource hub for those who own an RV and wish to help in some way with disaster relief efforts.

Currently there are over 50,000 families displaced along the gulf coast of Texas and there could be hundreds of thousands affected by IRMA in Florida.

 

1) Many of these people in the coming weeks may need temporary housing in their driveway while they make the necessary repairs to their homes. RV's are an EXCELLENT "temporary" solution that will give families the ability to be at home in a safe and private environment with a kitchen, beds, closets, water, bathrooms and electricity while they meet with insurance adjusters, FEMA, repaimen and furniture deliveries without having to displace their entire family to another area. This group is meant to help match up RV owners with those in immediate need.

2) RVers are also the type of volunteers these communities GREATLY need to come help, as they come self contained without the need to suck up housing resources like hotel rooms and the like. There are many organizations that will be seeking out volunteers who own RVs to come to the area and volunteer once people are able to return to their homes and businesses.
