Scalvoris Relief Effort: Volunteer & Donations

Scalvoris Docks Relief Effort:
Volunteers & Supporters Here

It wasn't fancy or well furnished. In fact, it was a large room with a line of tables across it. Seated at those tables were people, citizens of Scalvoris who were taking donations and volunteer details. Behind them, in the large space, healers and volunteers moved, finding equipment and supplies, or taking them to inventory them. It was a very organised operation, which no one who knew the people involved would find surprising. Efficiency, after all, saves lives.

Fundamentally, everyone knew what had happened - there had been an awful situation on the Docks and an entire area had been destroyed. People were missing, dead and injured, buildings were utterly decimated - some of which were homes. No one knew yet just what the death toll was, nor the count of the injured, but the relief effort was underway.

Scalvoris Council had matched the donation given by Isonomia, the charity faction associated with Cally's and the Councillor for Welfare, Faith Augustin was in charge of the relief effort. Here, the volunteers were accepting donations. Some of those were donations of money, others of items such as blankets, medical supplies, things like that and, hopefully, they were getting people coming in and volunteering their time. THAT was what was needed. Time and effort from those who could give it.

Each individual was welcomed with a friendly, efficient smile and details taken. No matter whether it was the donation of a blanket from a child or of a vast sum or money or time. Everyone who donated throughout those trials, their name was taken and noted. Later, after all, it would be important to remember those people and thank them.
Ok - so this thread is a sort of "sign up" - please complete the form below, post it here. If you manage 1,500 words there, you can get it reviewed (but as a solo) - either way, this is an Impact Thread for Scalvoris - so if you only do one post here (of over 250 words) and deduct items / money from your ledger, then you will be part of that. However, if you want to be involved in the relief effort as a pc - indicate so and we'll do a thread or you can do a solo / collab with other volunteers in order to push the relief effort along! Obviously, if you're donating time, that will need to be represented in at least one thread.

The relief efforts were well underway, and in Padraig's mind, Faith was doing too much. On the other hand, there'd been no question that she would. The people who'd been impacted were fellow citizens, friends and neighbors and they'd lost so much. Their homes, their livelihoods, even lives of husbands and wives, parents or children. How could she not want to help? He felt the same way, in fact and perhaps there was more than just money he could give. Though he could certainly give that. It wasn't just a matter of rebuilding structures and trying to give the people back a little of what had been lost. It was also about restoring their spirits and hopes. There'd been upheaval, people were angry and rightfully so. But the more that was done to repair the damage, the sooner the upheaval and anger might subside.

So he'd brought a banknote for five thousand nels to donate to the efforts. But he'd also submitted plans for a little something that he'd come up with, putting heads together with a couple of engineers from the university. The previous residences that had been destroyed had been ordinary ones, but he'd conceived of a plan that might not just give the people back a place to live. It might also provide them with a little something extra that they'd never had before now. The detailed plans he submitted were simple ones. And it was the simplicity of it that had appealed the most. Radiant heat in one instance, and cooled in another. One for the coldest part of the arc, and one for the hottest. What it meant of course was that it would provide homes, even in multiple unit buildings, with heating and cooling without the need for lighting fires or opening windows. It might even reduce the risk of buildings catching fire when a hot ash fell out of a hearth and onto a carpet.

Large, flat mattresses in a sense, crafted out of metal and comprised of a honeycombed series of pockets filled with orange sand for heat, alternated with others filled with cooling sand. The simple act of pulling a lever on the wall, in each residence, could make the difference between heat and cooling radiance on a whim. Installed beneath floors, inside walls, and residents would be surrounded by cool air or warm depending on the time of the arc. Simple as could be, and surely the monetary donation he was offering up, would cover the costs of supplies, construction and installation. And besides the money and plans, Padraig added his name to the list of volunteers who would help with the cleanup work.
