Opportunity Details

Meet With Local Tornado Survivors


Tornado Recovery Connection (TRC) is working in partnership with UMCOR to help Davidson and Wilson County residents recover from the March tornado. Disaster Case Managers (DCMs) meet with tornado survivors on occasion to assess needs, collect documents, have documents signed, etc. These meetings are typically brief but may run longer. 
 
TRC DCMs are looking for volunteers to join them when meeting with a client for two primary reasons: 
  • First and foremost, to convey a clear message to tornado survivors that their community cares about their recovery. 
  • Second, to provide an extra set of eyes and ears along the way. 
     
The dress code for this opportunity is business casual. 
 
A background check is required for this volunteer opportunity. It only takes a few minutes to get the information submitted and is provided at no cost. Please click “express interest” below to start the process. Once submitted, and background check is preformed, a TRC Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to welcome you and share next steps. This background check is free. 
 
IMPORTANT: We are doing all that we can to protect ourselves, each other, and our community from spreading COVID-19. Volunteers will be expected to comply with TN UMC’s COVID-19 Safety Protocols as do our DCM’s which include: allowing your temperature to be taken, answer a few COVID symptom and contact questions, wear (your own) mask at all times, and observe a 6 – 10’ social distance when at all possible from the start to the end of each meeting. 
 
We hope you will join us.
