On Friday, January 19, 2018, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST, OSHS within ED and its REMS TA Center hosted a Webinar on the topic of managing donations and volunteers before, during and after emergency events that impact school district, school and campus communities (public and nonpublic). The Webinar provided an overview of key concepts and considerations related to integrating donation and volunteer management into school and higher ed emergency operations plans (EOPs).

Presenters described operational considerations for managing donations and volunteers from the Federal and local perspective and share lessons learned from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and the 2011 tornado that impacted the Joplin School District.

The Webinar included a PowerPoint presentation. Following the presentation, the presenters answered participant questions in a Question and Answer session and a Community of Practice Web Chat.
