Associated Churches Active in Disaster (ACAD, the disaster ministry of Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County) put out the following message on the Associated Churches Facebook Page this morning:
Regarding the tornado disaster in Kokomo and other parts of Indiana, Associated Churches Active in Disaster (ACAD) is in communication with Indiana Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (INVOAD), which will coordinate any volunteer response from outside the affected areas. During a conference call late yesterday afternoon, INVOAD indicated that no volunteer resources from outside the disaster areas are needed at this time.
The ACAD leadership team strongly recommends that well-meaning volunteers stay away from disaster areas until and unless they are part of a coordinated response. ACAD will remain in contact with those who are coordinating responses and will inform local Christians of response opportunities as they arise.
Dan Layden, ACAD Chair
