Recovering from the Memorial Day Floods

This past Memorial Day brought an unexpected amount of severe weather to the Central Texas region. Our thoughts are with those families and communities who lost so much as a result.

Though our attention was initially focused on the Wimberley area, which was devastated by the recent floods, we soon realized that more than 180 families across Williamson County suffered significant damage.  These families will need the help of the community in the days, weeks and months ahead in order to rebuild their lives and their homes.

Williamson County's Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) has mobilized a Long Term Recover Committee (LTRC) that will put into action a plan for extended recovery for the affected families and their homes. This long term work, which is beyond the initial relief and cleanup, will focus on the actual rebuilding of homes and lives and may last weeks or even years.

We need your help. Volunteer opportunities are being organized. And a Fund (sponsored by United Way of Williamson County) to help with the cost of building materials has been set up. 100% of the donations to the May 2015 Flood Relief Fund are tax-deductible and will be used for the long-term recovery efforts in Williamson County.

We will be updating our website with volunteer opportunities as they become available. If you'd like to be added to our email list to receive information about the volunteer opportunities, please email us at volrock@volrock.org
