Vermont Law School has established a donation fund for victims of Irene-related funding:
Vermont Law School has established the VLS Relief Fund to accept financial contributions to aid VLS students, staff and faculty who have been affected by Tropical Storm Irene. The top priority are those who need assistance with housing, food, clothing and other basic needs as well as books and other study materials for students. Second priority will be repairs to VLS buildings and grounds that sustained damage from the storm.
For more information on volunteering and donating, visit this website.
I also got an e-mail last night from Vermont's land use clinician, Kat Garvey. Kat and her husband had just returned from their honeymoon, which made for a surreal experience. The Land Use Clinic's associate director, Peg Elmer, suffered extensive flood damage to her home.
Kat is recruiting the VLS community and volunteer lawyers to provide help to flood victims applying for FEMA assistance. If you or your law school has experience with post-disaster relief, I'm sure Kat would love to hear from you.
