Every year Unite to Light makes a plan that includes providing our solar Luke Lights and Chandler Chargers to people experiencing disasters. We depend on your help and generosity to fund these response and recovery efforts. And while we have several long time partners (like Direct Relief) we can count on to help with distribution, we never quite know where those disasters will strike or how big the “give” will be.
2021 proved to be another tumultuous year with fires, floods, freezes, hurricanes and earthquakes that impacted us close to home and around the globe. Our supporters, like you, funded thousands of units to help people who had lost everything. Read on to hear about a few of the projects you helped support this year, and also grab your “Stay” or “Go” Checklist so that you’re prepared when a disaster strikes.
In the event of an emergency, it is crucial to be prepared ahead of time, but thinking ahead about a possible disaster is unnerving, and it can be difficult to know where to start when getting supplies. For some disasters you will need to evacuate with little to no notice, while others can require you and your loved ones to stay put and wait things out. You should be prepared for either eventuality, and have the right supplies ready for each situation. Start building your emergency kit today with our blog post and downloadable checklists as a guide.
