HELPING OUT THOSE IN NEED

The FEDERATION is not just another Star Trek ™ fan club.  In September of 2018 Chapters of the FEDERATION helped collect donations and supplies from their local communities for Hurricane Florence in North and South Carolina.  And then turned around and did the same for victims of Hurricane Michael in October of the same year.  Supplies were then delivered to staging areas by our partners in Mercury One and Cajun Navy Supply making certain that they quickly got into the hands of those needing it the most.

It’s never too late to help out. Donations are the quickest and easiest way to help those on the ground and those in need.

Galileo Stands By

Since Gene Roddenberry ordered The Federation to “go places and help people,” Federation chapters around the world have done just that, focusing on the needs of those in each community.  At times of disaster, the efforts of all of our chapters around the world are coordinated to send volunteers, aid and funds to the effected areas.

Galileo is the first in The Federation’s fleet of vehicles designed to be dispatched to areas of need filled with disaster relief aid, volunteers and equipment.  From first aid equipment to drones for search and rescue, Galileo has been outfitted for almost any need.  Your support of The Federation and Galileo help us deliver hope to those in need today.

 

It begins as to how one can help in their community. Believe or not it starts with the little things.

Over the last couple of years, we through the benefit if social media and technological advances in communication we now have new 24/7 and we have become witness to some of the worse events and many times we are left with the lingering thoughts if we could do more.

Becoming we weather spotter is perhaps one of the easiest form of volunteerism. And it has a real world affect during an event. It take just one person to learn how to be a SKYWARN Spotter. And small group can form the nucleus of Spotters helping to give out real time data to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service and NOAA working together with volunteers help put real world “boots on the ground” data into the hands of meteorologists. This information is used to help update forecasts, help warn the public and local authorities. This the SKYWARN Program.
