Current Response to the May 28th Tornado
Updated 6/7/2019 at 2:00pm
Leavenworth County Emergency Management (includes the cities of Linwood and Leavenworth) is suspending volunteer activities this weekend, June 8 & 9. Please DO NOT go to Leavenworth County.
Non-ERT trained individuals are now welcome to volunteer with the recovery effort through the Douglas County Emergency Management Volunteer Reception Center in Lawrence. Church of the Resurrection will not be organizing any groups at this time, but you are welcome to report to the Volunteer Reception Center to assist with the continued clean-up. Please come prepared with sturdy shoes, heavy gloves, sunscreen, water, and safety glasses.
We are incredibly grateful for the five teams of almost 50 ERT and Chainsaw team volunteers who have already responded to the call for assistance. Their presence and hard work helped restore some normalcy to the community in the aftermath of the storm.
Continue to check this page for updates as the response moves into the long-term recovery phase, and continue praying for all the people in our communities affected by the storm.
