The Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) has received an overwhelming outpouring of assistance this morning. The City of Wetumpka and the Elmore County Commission greatly appreciate the individuals and groups that have offered to assist in the cleanup of the tornado’s aftermath.
At this time, the VRC will stop accepting volunteers so that the current volunteers and emergency personnel working the downtown area can safely conduct cleanup activities.
Current plans would be to close the VRC until the weekend. Additional details for volunteers to assist with activities over the weekend will be disseminated as soon as assessments of the long term recovery needs can be made and assignments defined.
Again, the City if Wetumpka and Elmore County Commission appreciates the outpouring of support for all of our citizens affected by the tornado. Opportunities to continue to assist will be announced soon.
