Flood Recovery Update and Connections

Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF), in conjunction with the Long-Term Recovery Group, are hosting Zoom sessions to provide consistent updates to community members about the process of long-term flood recovery. The sessions are called, “Flood Recovery Update and Connections.” Topics covered on the twice-monthly sessions include resource deployment, FEMA, case management, housing support, rebuild and construction, and volunteering.

“The Midland Area Community Foundation strives to be responsible stewards of flood recovery donations,” said Sharon Mortensen, President and CEO of the Midland Area Community Foundation and member of the Long-Term Recovery Group Steering Committee. “We want to provide a transparent forum to speak directly with donors, community members, non-profit organizations, businesses, or anyone who wants to learn more about long-term flood recovery.”

Flood Recovery Update and Connections are open to everyone. Attendees are asked to register for the sessions at https://bit.ly/3gSOmDi. Beginning August 20th at 10:30am, sessions have been held the first and third Thursday of the month. For those unable to attend, sessions are rebroadcasted on Midland Community Television and the MACF YouTube page.

“We understand there are a lot of questions surrounding flood recovery,” said Mortensen. “We will continue invite members of the Long-Term Recovery Group take part in the sessions, sharing knowledge in their area(s) of expertise to connect people together.”
