Our goal is simple and ambitious: provide help in any way possible to those affected by disasters. KeepVolunteering.org uses 100% of public donations to fund response efforts. We partner with individuals, organizations and churches in order to connect those with a need to those who can fulfill the need.
Over time our goal is to develop 5 fleets strategically positioned within a 500 mile radius of Huntsville, Alabama. Appropriate technologies are crucial for providing sustainable solutions. If there were a house fire, 20 people would not be sent in with 5 gallon buckets, the proper equipment would be ready, insuring an immediate and appropriate response.
We continue to raise money for the much need bobcat, gooseneck flatbed trailer, and dually truck. These pieces of the Disaster Response Fleet are essential to helping those immediately after being hit by a disaster.
After the outbreak of the EF4 and EF5 tornadoes that took their toll on the south in April of 2011, KeepVolunteering was created to help those affected by disasters. We noticed a gap in communication between organizations and the people living in this community. Our goal is to close that gap and to connect people who want to volunteer with those in need in the community.
Alice & Donald's Story
For us, volunteering is pragmatic. It's sometimes easy, more often inconvenient, but always necessary. It's the ability to use one's position of influence, relative wealth and power to affect lives for the better. Volunteering is something that should be part of human nature...something natural. If someone is in need, you provide the best you can. We are looking for what is real and what is good. Through doing this we have found that. Read More

If we want to see speedier recovery in disasters, we need to be investing in long-lasting solutions. It’s not just technology; it’s expert partners, sustainability, education and community empowerment. This is how we work.
We are collecting donations for as many "Family Starter Kits" as we can build, in order to appropriately respond in a disaster. Below you will see a link for printable lists of what each kit consists of. These kits will be what each family affected by this horrific disaster will need to take that first step to recovery.
