Abstract

This study examines how the structure of social networks is related to different types of volunteering behavior, including the intensity of volunteering and spatiotemporal aspects of volunteering and focuses on the severe flooding that affected Fargo, North Dakota, in spring 2009. The investigations reveal that volunteers are willing to travel at least five miles and, in some cases, up to approximately eighteen miles to volunteer. The findings suggest that network density and diversity are significantly related to different types of volunteer behavior
