Red Cross Volunteers

By  | 

Volunteers packed up their travel gear Friday afternoon and will spend the next two to three weeks helping the hardest hit areas.

Volunteers say they are excited by this mission because they know how much their help is needed by coastal residents.

Sara Borham says we're expecting a lot of challenges dealing with families who've lost their homes.

“I've personally never been through that, so I'm looking forward to learning a lot from those people and hopefully getting them back on their feet."

The volunteers have learned firsthand how to help folks, thanks to the volunteers who helped run south Georgia shelters during Hurricane Frances a few weeks ago.
