Architects Volunteer for Disaster Relief but More is Needed

There has been an outpouring of support from State architects regarding a call for volunteers to aid in disaster relief. But more is needed!

Responding to the growing number of counties that experienced severe flooding across Western Washington, the AIA Washington Council sent out a request for help to do building assessments right away, as early as Monday Jan. 12. Architects responded enthusiastically!

Already the AIA Washington Council has over fifty volunteers who have responded and are willing to pitch in. In response to the large amount of willing disaster relief participants the AIA Washington Council has set up training to make use of every available person.

However, help is still needed. Many people in homes across Western Washington will still be dealing with extremely cold water and damages to their homes, and even the loss of homes.

If you would like to volunteer please attend the training on Sunday morning at 8:30am-11:30am AIA Seattle located downtown on First Avenue between Virginia and Stewart (address: 1911 First Avenue, Seattle, 98101).

Rachel Minnery is helping the AIA Washington Council lead disaster relief efforts you have questions you can contact her at rminnery@gmail.com or 206-280-6685 for specific questions.

You can also click here to email the AIA Washington Council if you can participate on Sunday.

Thank you to all our volunteers for your support!
