Attention all volunteers! Serve Wisconsin is helping recruit individuals to help with disaster recovery following the recent storms. If you have any questions, please contact Ruhamah Bauman with Serve Wisconsin.

The storms from last weekend have caused substantial tree damage and the following Wisconsin Counties have opportunities for volunteers to assist with the recent storm damage.
