Tropical Storm Iselle Prompts 'Project Hawaii'

After 22 years without a major storm, Tropical Storm Iselle made landfall in the Puna district of Hawaii’s Big Island on Aug. 8 and caused massive devastation.

Less than 12 hours after Tropical Storm Iselle hit, All Hands Volunteers‘ assessment team was in place.

In partnership with Hawaii State Civil Defense, Team Rubicon and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and others, All Hands will be managing the Volunteer Reception Center and leading debris removal teams.

All Hands Volunteers is seeking both donations and additional volunteers to help manage the situation on Hawaii’s Big Island.

According to a release from All Hands Volunteers, “No special skills or previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to work hard for a good cause.”

Project Hawaii is expected to run until Aug. 27.
