Hurricane Irma impacted a large part of Florida and recovery is going on is several communities across the state. PDA has partnered with several organizations to assist with recovery. Some of the sites listed below are not officially affiliated with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance but need volunteers nonetheless. Both the work and the housing accommodations may be quite different from what you have encountered in the past if you have stayed at a PDA hosting site. We strongly recommend that you ask the response hosting group any questions you may have before committing a volunteer team to the site. We also encourage you to make the PDA Call Center aware of your interest in going to one of these sites. This will allow the Call Center to put your group’s name on file so we can send you updates on volunteer opportunities that will occur in the future.  You can do this by emailing Eden Roberts at pda.callcenter@pcusa.org
