Representatives from the State of New Jersey, Small Business Administration and FEMA presented disaster recovery information at a webinar hosted on Dec. 5, 2012 by the national, regional and state leadership of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The “Communities Helping Communities; Neighbors 2 Neighbors” webinar was held to educate, equip and empower more than 200 members of this sorority with recovery information and resources.
The sorority plans to encourage general registration and the steps to disaster assistance among eligible applicants through their existing community networks. A FEMA toolkit was also developed and distributed to assist members who plan to reach out to places of worship, business, and leisure.
