Trusted World provides Disaster Services in two different ways.
1) We provide Donation Management. During the 2017 hurricane season in North Texas, Trusted World provided the receiving/sorting and distribution services for North Texas and the Nation. We received over 13 million items that were sorted and distributed throughout South Texas, Flordia, Peurto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
2) We provide Long-Term Love. We monitor and follow up with areas affected by disasters. We ensure they are getting the service and resources that they need. The average recovery time of a catastrophe is three years. We stay with them, during this time, tracking their needs.
2017 Hurricane Season by the numbers
Over 13 million items were donated and process for hurricane support from August 26, 2017 through November 29, 2017.
These items we placed on over 2,700 pallets and shipped to over 20 different cities in 2 states and 3 territories.
We had the honor of having over 20,487 volunteers providing over 45,032 hours to help us accomplish this task.
Louisiana Flooding 2016
Twice, Louisiana was hit by flooding. First in February in Northern Louisiana, then in August in Baton Rouge. Both times Trusted World answered the call.
Total relief provided for both areas were:
90,000+ packed meals (rice, soy, beans…)
1,000+ canned and packaged food
300+ packs of toiletries
6,000+ articles of clothing
10,000+ diapers and wipes
20,000+ servings of baby food
3,000+ first aid items
We are still providing resources to the Louisiana area. According to Disaster Response Agencies it can take from 3 months to 3 years to recover from having your house flooded. Some people just lose their home, others work locally and lose both their homes and their job.
Trusted World provides resources well after the flood waters recede.
