FILL THE NEEDS
What began as a community of coordinated volunteers responding to flooding in Cedar Rapids Iowa in 2008 and Southeast Louisiana in 2016 launched into Fill the Needs in 2022. We rapidly deploy our network and resources in the first fourteen days following a disaster.
Who we are ?
Fill the Needs rapidly mobilizes our network of partners and volunteers to assess and coordinate resources required for efficient disaster response. The first 14 days following a disaster are critical for resource deployments immediately impacting the lives of people dealing with natural & man-made disasters. Beyond the first 14 days, Fill the Needs supports ongoing relief efforts by providing funding, supplies and support where they are lacking.
What we do ?
