Help get the right volunteers to the right place at the right time during a disaster!

The EVC is activated in times of disaster, but preparation occurs year-round. Trained EVC Volunteers:

  • Coordinate the large influx of volunteer who respond to a disaster
  • Register and interview volunteers to assess skills and abilities
  • Match volunteers to meet community needs
  • Conduct safety briefings
  • Track volunteer hours and impact
  • Serve a one-year “on call” commitment with the possibility of extension


Email vols@unitedwayjc.org or call 319-337-VOLS (8657) to sign-up or be notified of the next training.
