Big thanks to everyone who helped make today a success! Bryan’s Home is another step closer to restoring hope to homeless veterans on the Oregon Coast. #teamroww #operationrebuildhope #roww #helpeachother #bryanshome #dogood
Veterans make up roughly 7% of the total population of the United States yet make up 12% of the homeless population. Operation Rebuild Hope is dedicated to improving the quality of life for veterans and their families by preventing possible homelessness through conducting home repairs and improvements and engaging veterans in the building process. Reach Out WorldWide is contributing to "Bryan's Home" - a fixer upper that will ultimately house 22 veterans, including dedicated space for women and families. It'll be transitional housing with a drug and alcohol free program, volunteer requirements and job training. The ultimate goal is reducing the number of homeless veterans and cutting down on the number of veterans that commit suicide. #bryanshome #teamroww #volunteer #operationrebuildhope #lowes
Work is underway at Bryan’s Home in North Bend with @operationrebuildhope. #TeamROWW is aiming to complete installation of the 4000+ sf of siding that we delivered last week with support from @loweshomeimprovement. Learn more by visiting www.roww.org. Link to contribute to Bryan’s Home in bio.
Siding and materials have been delivered ✅ stay tuned for how ROWW is contributing to Bryan’s Home in North Bend, Oregon - a project battling homelessness within our Veteran community. Pictured here: Josh, Merit, and Patrick are all veterans themselves. #roww #dogood #operationrebuildhope #veteran #bryanshome
Meet David - a homeowner #teamroww was able to help out this month in Oklahoma. David and his wife have called this Home for over 20 years. As devastating as these floods are, David and his family are grateful for what they do have: each other. A true high school sweethearts love story: David literally married the girl next door. They’ve been together since they were 14. This isn’t the first hardship that they’ve overcome, and they’ll conquer this, too. We’re glad we could lend a few hands to start the recovery process. #helpeachother #volunteer #lowesheroes #roww #heroww #reachoutworldwide #dogood #goodwill #disasterresponse #oklahomaflood2019
@puristgroup is doing our back to school charity event this Saturday! Would love to see you guys there. Come and hang out and check out some cool cars. 4 years ago they started this event with merely 40 backpacks. Last year we did more than 1500 backpacks to help the kids go back to school. This year we are shooting for 3000 and we will for sure reach it with your help! Please help us share this flyer out so more people will be aware of it. Thank you all. #puristgroup #purists #backtoschool #3000 #backpacks #charity

It’s been 7 days since the water receded in Sand Springs, OK and the mold is coming in full force. This home had 4.5 feet of water. #teamroww, supported by #lowesheroes, has already completed 7 full muck and guts in this neighborhood and we hope to finish 2 more today and the work will continue through next week at least.

It is common to see many displaced animals post-disaster. Our team has discovered a home that was completely lost as well as the barn in Jay, Ok. Thankfully, the family and all cows are safe! Only one cow came out with a small cut. Our team has helped clear access so that the cows could get back to food and water. Our team has also assisted the homeowners with rounding up the cows and are working on finding a new place for them to stay while they rebuild. #roww #reachoutworldwide #teamroww #oklahoma #tornado #barn #cows #livestock #animals
Over the weekend a string of tornadoes struck Oklahoma and Texas causing localized damage. It is now being reported that the next 24 hours have the potential to produce much larger tornado systems. Our team is preparing to mobilize and coordinate with local resources to gather real-time information. Be prepared. Be safe. #ROWW #TORNADO #OKLAHOMA #TEXAS #TORNADOALLEY #DOGOOD
Local humanitarian and government forces were prepared for Cyclone Fani, a category four cyclone that struck India's Odisha state this morning. Thanks to better preparation than in years' past, over 1,000,000 people were successfully evacuated in the coastal areas. Just three deaths connected to the storm have been reported so far. A similar storm in 1999 claimed nearly 15,000 lives. Although the damage is severe and the weather threats continue, props to India for their response to this monster storm! Fani is the strongest storm to hit the country in 20 years. ROWW will continue to monitor medical needs in the region as a result of the storm. #roww #cyclonefani #disasterpreparedness #disasterresponse #dogood #goodwill #volunteer #india #reachoutworldwide #paulwalker
#ROWW representing at @puristgroup and @sebastian.with.oi’s first joint toy drive! This drive happened all because of Sebastian. After #puristwinterdrive last year, he decided he wanted to host his own toy drive. His reasoning: he wanted to give the kids in the hospital that he often visits a happier day. Sebastian was born with a rare bone disease and has had 85 broken bones and 20 surgeries in his life of 10 years. Today, as a community, we made his dream come true and gathered 2 trucks full of toys so that he can deliver to @lashriners hospital soon. This is not just a car meet, it’s a car meet with a purpose and meaning. That is @puristgroup and we’re proud to be a part of it. Thank you for creating these events that give so much. #community #purist #dogood #goodwill #carmeet #toydrive #foracause #randomactsofkindness #heroww
Just a month after Cyclone Idai left nearly 1,000 dead in south eastern Africa, Cyclone Kenneth swept through many of the recovering countries yesterday as a Category 4 storm. Thankfully, due to making landfall in more remote locations and dropping less rain than anticipated, Kenneth has not matched the devastating effects of last month's storm. Still, more rain is to come and Mozambique and neighboring countries will continue to battle the effects of Idai + Kenneth in terms of destroyed crops and health issues like cholera. ROWW is following the storm to determine if we can help. - #roww #mozambique #dogood #goodwill #disasterrelief #cycloneidai #cyclonekenneth #clycone #charity #volunteer #helpeachother 📷 reuters/joshestey

ROWW hosted our first Team Summit this past weekend, attended by many of our core volunteers from all across the US, to discuss and enhance ROWW’s operating procedures. We heard great feedback, learned new tips, had a lot of laughs, and left with an inspiring sense of camaraderie. Thank you to all of ROWW’s volunteers who’ve been with us for years, and for those who continue to subscribe and allow us to grow #TeamROWW. We wouldn’t exist without you. 📸 @nikdans
Recent flooding has been an ongoing issue for the Midwest over the past two weeks. With river levels starting to drop we are continuing our assessments and conversations with local organizations to see how we can best assist those who have been affected. #roww #dogood #omaha #nebraska

THANK YOU to the 75+ volunteers that showed up to support ROWW! FuelFest was a team effort, and because of you, we killed it! We appreciate each and every one of you! Because of your help at events like @FuelFest, ROWW is able to continue sending teams to help those who need it most. Currently, our team is in Alabama helping those affected by the recent tornadoes.
"We all wish to be brave and strong in the face of disaster. We all wish to be looked up to for our endurance and efforts to help others." Clarissa Pinkola Estes The ROWW team is now on Day 5 in Beauregard, Alabama. The local residents have led our team into the hard to reach areas that have not been helped. Debris and tree removal and roof tarping have been the greatest need. While our team tirelessly continues to help those in need; it's hard to imagine how these residents survived this deadly tornado. This is the least we can do for those who have lost so much. #roww #reachoutworldwide #disasterrelief #beauregardstrong #tornado #alabama
As the ROWW team continues relief efforts in Beauregard, Alabama, the community's comradery and the resources coming in to help this town has been nothing but good work in the wake of this tragic disaster. #beauregardstrong #roww #reachoutworldwide #disasterrelief #tornado #alabama
ROWW has deployed a specialized team of Sawyers to Lee County, Alabama. The team arrived yesterday and are already helping those in need. Team ROWW has reported that the damage from Sunday's the string of tornados and the EF-4 is catastrophic. 23 people have died and Search and Rescue teams are still looking for 8 more missing community members. Please keep Lee County, Alabama in your thoughts. #roww #reachoutworldwide #leecounty #alabama #tornado

Within days of a massive tsunami in Palu, Indonesia, ROWW deployed a small team of medical professionals on a tireless trek to provide medical aid in villages throughout the devastated area. One of ROWW’s volunteer paramedics, Cammie Cooley, documented our team’s daily progress: “We started Day 5 with a 5am wake-up and 6am departure to the airport. Dr. Michael had arranged helicopter transport for us to the small village of Sirenja. It was reported that the village was affected by the 7.4 earthquake and had only seen one supply drop in the 8 days post-disaster. The village is remote and ground transportation is limited due to the road conditions. The flight via helicopter is roughly thirty minutes. The supply drop to Sirenja left ten minutes prior to our departure as a security measure. On the course of the flight was smooth and we had a view of the liquification of the villages affected by the tsunami. Sirenja is a small rural village with a population of 300 people. Our pilot was able to land our team safely in a cow pasture outside the village… We saw a variety of trauma injuries: sprained ankles, infected puncture wounds, burns, cuts, broken extremities, and more within a wide age group. Wounds were debrided, wrapped, and antibiotic treatments are given to prevent further infection. Tuberculosis is rampant and we saw many cases over the course of the day. Patients were educated on the disease, coached to cover coughs, wear masks, and recommended treatment at the closest clinic. We also saw a variety of respiratory illnesses and other chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, and even stable anginas. Over the course of 4.5hrs, our small team saw 175 patients. When air transport arrived, the attitude of the villagers had completely changed. What had initially started as anger from their lack of support after the disaster, turned to smiles and gratefulness. They assisted us in carrying our supplies to the helicopter and gathered to wave good-bye. It was amazing to see the change and to be able to provide care to the people of Sirenja.” #roww #reachoutworldwide #tsunami #indonesia #medicalaid #disasterrelief

“One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone.” -Shannon L. Alder Just days after Hurricane Michael, the ROWW team found an elderly survivor in a small decimated neighborhood of Mexico Beach, Florida. Alone on the back porch of his damaged mobile home, he was having trouble lifting a 5-gallon gas can to refuel his generator. We soon found out he was also in need of removing debris and a tree that had fallen on his home; he needed his roof tarpped too. He had no family and no where else to go. Our team immediately went to work. We reached out to some of the other residents remaining in the area and asked if they would look after him; they agreed. When we last saw him, he explained, “I have never had this many visitors and eaten so well in my life.” #roww #reachoutworldwide #disasterrelief #hurricanemichael #mexicobeach #florida #mexicobeachstrong #youarenotalone

The devastating wildfires engulfing California are hitting particularly close to home. We are continuing to look for ways to help our #rowwfamily and the many others affected by this tragedy. Repost @cheyenneellis ・・・ Zuma beach... currently 💔 My aunt just sent me this photo who is there, evacuated with my grandmother, and moving further south because of the smoke. My sister is out with the boys and animals. Some of our family is sticking around trying to save our homes. Both Topanga and Malibu are on Mandatory evacuations all the way around. My pup is safe and I’m not home. My friends are super stars and we’ll figure this out. I’ve seen a million fires in my life but nothing like this, ever. Please send love and all the good things you can think of. Malibu, Agoura, Paradise, the places I love the most are going to have a long hard road to recovery 🙏 #woolseyfire
