ChesCo: Community & Faith-Based Organizations Have Resources

Chester County is working to connect people with storm-related emergency needs to organizations that may be able to help.

This press release was sent out by the Chester County Department of Emergency Services. 

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Chester County Emergency Management officials encourage residents with property damage to contact their local municipality or the Chester County Department of Emergency Services at 610-344-4335, to report the damage. It is recommended that photographs be taken and documented before clean up/repairs begin.

In addition, County Emergency Management officials want residents with storm related needs to connect with community and faith-based organizations within the region that may be able to help with those needs.

To streamline the process, the attached form was developed to allow residents to ask for this help.The form should be filled out and returned to the Chester County Department of Emergency Services, 601 Westtown Road, Suite 012, West Chester, PA 19380 or Fax to 610-344-5050 or emailed to chestercountyeoc@chesco.org. Filling out and returning the form does not guarantee that any organization can meet the resident’s needs.

The form has been distributed to all the municipalities and is available on the department’s website – www.chesco.org/des

[Editor's note: the form can also be found attached to this article in PDF format.]

If there is a community organization in the County that has resources available for our residents, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator of the Chester County Department of Emergency Services at jzeis@chesco.org.
