Over 400 Flood Related Cases Opened and Closed
Coastal Community Action Program (CCAP) has worked with over 400 families since the January 5 rainstorm, flooding and mudslides. Twenty cases remain open and work is continuing.
The Washington Conservation Corps worked with 83 area homes and put in a total of 2600 hours of labor. The Conservation Corps was funded through the Washington State Department of Ecology. As of last week, the Conservation Corps has completed their work and has left the remaining projects in the hands of local volunteer groups and community organizations.
CCAP will continue to manage the remaining flood cases with the assistance of United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and NeighborWorks with funds from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation and United Way of Grays Harbor.
Grays Harbor County, the City of Aberdeen and the City of Hoquiam extend their thank you to Immanuel Baptist Church and the YMCA of Grays Harbor for providing housing, meals and shower facilities for the Conservation Corps.
Grays Harbor Community Foundation is continuing to collect donations on behalf of the flood recovery efforts. Checks can be made payable to Grays Harbor Community Foundation Flood Relief Fund and mailed to PO Box 615, Hoquiam, WA 98550.
