crews at the loading dock in an old K-Mart in
Jim Edwards and his Staff!
|Full time Red Crossers, Hunter and Robin used the manpower offered by National and kept us busy feeding the masses. We worked an average of 13 hour days.||More of the appreciation dinner.|
|Laura and Jose from Spain||This Red Crosser crying as she was working guarding supplies at a shelter in Hattiesburg. A very tough, rude and persistant client gave her a tough time. After 10 minutes, she made the client happy and even she had a smile for us.|
|500 people were staying in the Multi-Purpose Building, the building was normally a Bull Ring and it seats about 3,000 people. Most slept above the seats on a flat area but many slept on the dirt. A few even set up tents for privacy.||This is the Client Service Center in New Augusta, Miss. 5 of these centers in the Hattiesburg area interviewed clients regarding their immediate needs of food, clothing and shelter.|
|Early in the mission, Danny and I took 14,400 meals to a shelter in Picayune, Miss. On the way, 3 miles north of Gulfport, Miss. the high water mark was 13 feet above the interstate. From the interstate, we were looking at the roofs of many homes and businesses.||A home stood here!|
|Fearsome foursome||Danny, Arlene and a David (mental health) prior to loading. Many units had Mental Health workers to console the clients.|
|When 30 people sleep in the same room 3' between bunks, it makes you appreciate your home.||Tim, standing under a green sign Farve Road, named after Green Bay's Quarterback|
|Proud to be Americans||Mike, Dave, Vida, Steve and SallyAnn|
|Someone had donated hardgoods and we used them at the shelters. We normally don't accept supplies but the needs were different during Katrina relief efforts.||HQ|
