All ESG locations are operating today.

To help our communities that were negatively affected by Sunday’s devastating storms, the “ESG Cares” team has compiled the following volunteering or donation options:

Volunteer Opportunities

  • To sign up for manual labor shifts or to volunteer at one of the facilities through United Way (must be 16 and older)
  • To volunteer as an individual or a group through The Salvation Army
  • If you can help, have a truck, generator, chainsaw, yard tools, and an attitude that says ‘Here I am, send me!’, and want to volunteer through Silverdale Baptist Church (Bonny Oaks location serving as local command center), send an email with your name, contact number, and gear
