Working Together

The Bulloch County VOAD (Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster) came out of the local post-Hurricane Matthew disaster efforts in the fall of 2016. Local community leaders came together to work on local disaster relief efforts if something were to happen again. It takes a village and these community leaders give time and energy to make sure the citizens of Bulloch County are taken care of and provided the resources in time of disaster.
