A press release from Team Rubicon:
Veteran-led Team Rubicon Providing Flood Relief Across Northern Illinois and Southeast Wisconsin
McHENRY COUNTY, Ill. (July 24, 2017) – Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization, has launched Operation Fox Yeah today to support residents of McHenry & Lake County, Ill. and Kenosha County, Wis. following the string of recent severe storms.
Team Rubicon will conduct damage assessments, provide muck-out operations, and provide debris removal.
Team Rubicon performs its services at no cost to those affected, thanks to the generosity of donors.
Residents seeking assistance are urged to call (800) 451-1954.
Through a strong communications infrastructure supported by cutting-edge technological solutions,
Team Rubicon volunteers efficiently and effectively respond to natural disasters and help get stricken families back into their homes as soon as possible.
Beyond disaster relief, Team Rubicon helps veterans find a renewed sense of purpose, which is vital as many veterans return to civilian life after their time in the military.
U.S. Marine Corps veterans Jake Wood and William McNulty founded the nonprofit in 2010 in the wake of the Haiti earthquake.
Team Rubicon has grown from eight volunteers to over 46,000, with more than 200 operations its belt, including responses to Superstorm Sandy, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and Hurricane Matthew.
Beyond Operation Fox Yeah, Team Rubicon is currently also providing aid in Oneida County, NY and Findlay, OH following massive flooding in those areas.
