Are there volunteer groups that could help me remove storm debris and trees/limbs from my yard?
Possibly. You may want to register your need at www.savannah.recovers.org.
My business can provide goods and/or services to help with cleanup and recovery. How can I get involved?
Www.savannah.recovers.org is an online platform that connects individuals who need help with those looking to provide assistance and make donations. We are encouraging individuals, nonprofit organizations, and business owners to add any available resources to the platform.
Damage to the physical space, loss of utilities, the evacuation, and/or the curfew prevented me from operating my business. Are there any funds available to help businesses with our losses?
