 Ice Storms 2008
Worcester, MA

Our Volunteers were there to help!

At the onset of the ice storm, the Worcester Regional MRC called out to their volunteers and only about 9 out of over 1,400 volunteers were able to respond with availability.  Worcester volunteers were taking care of their families.  This demonstrated the urgent need for mutual aid from other MRC’s in the state.  We know that if our region has need, the Worcester Regional MRC will be willing to help us .
