John DuBois of Glennville and Pamela Walters of Hinesville are among more than 150 volunteers helping to mobilize the American Red Cross’ emergency response vehicles.
Two ERVs from the Savannah chapter’s fleet arrived in Raleigh, N.C., late last week. Those and 30 other Red Cross emergency vehicles are positioned in North Carolina, where Hurricane Earl swiped past on Friday.
DuBois and Walters traveled to Raleigh where they are lending assistance where needed. Four Red Cross warehouses have been stocked with relief supplies, which will be passed out to hurricane victims, and two trailers containing clean-up kits, tarps, work gloves, comfort kits and trash bags to North Carolina.
American Red Cross volunteers are stationed from North Carolina to New England, where they are staffing shelters and feeding those affected by Hurricane Earl.
