Chris SichraThe Village of Godfrey has begun hosting volunteer recruitment drives, and the next one will be coming up in August. The first one was in support of Alton Volunteer Emergency Corp, an agency that provides emergency response support to the community. The concept is part of Godfrey's "whole community" approach to emergency management.

Godfrey Public Safety Administrator Chris Sichra tells the Big Z they are looking for volunteers that could help out with social service agencies, non-profits, and many other groups that serve the area.

The drives are being held on a bi-monthly basis.  The next recruitment drive will be held in August in support of the Godfrey Fire Protection District.
