Do you wish that you could help the individuals affected by the devastating storms in the south? We’re looking for dedicated volunteers who are willing to donate their time to help with the search and rescue efforts down south, especially those with a training background in mental health. 
"The mental health is the thing they're really pushing for right now especially for down south, but in general mental health people to come in and help council and they're really looking to deploy those people in Alabama, and North Carolina, and Missouri, and Arkansas in those states down south right now."
–Jay Bonafede, Communications Director for the Greater Buffalo Chapter
