National Service: Count On Us

by Samantha Jo Warfield

No matter where disaster strikes, National Service is there. Our AmeriCorps members have been on the ground in Joplin since the F5 tornado touched down on May 22nd.

More than 200 national service members have been engaged in the response and recovery activities including setting up and managing a Volunteer Reception Center, receiving and distributing donations, directing volunteers, and coordinating with FEMA and state agencies.

It's a compelling story -- one of Americans coming together to help others in need -- which is why we've put together this video about our work in Joplin.
