5 What we did right Extra meals were delivered before the storm hit – no senior went hungry Volunteers were contacted in advance to deliver early – no one stuck on roads Seniors were called before and during the storm to check up on them. We reached out to “SnowedOut Atlanta”, and neighborhood associations via Facebook Tweet questions/comments: Like us on Facebook /seniorconnectionsatl

6 What could have gone better? Track number of volunteers who came in through Facebook (we knew of 2) Work more closely with media and other I&R referrers Include outside groups in our “disaster plan” – who can get the word out that we need volunteers? – One went out 24 hours into the storm. We could have provided more communications with volunteers, donors and supporters before and after. Tweet questions/ comments:
