Seven local Red Cross volunteers shared their stories of helping the victims of Hurricane Isaac. Each says the experience affected them in different ways.
They helped set up shelters, haul supplies, feed the hungry and attend to health care needs. The volunteers include a husband and wife, a retired doctor and a retired nurse on her first disaster deployment.
"There was a lot of different things I felt. A little bit of it was frustrating, there was some waiting around, organization, I kind of wanted to get right in there. But when we finally did get to put a shelter together and be one-on-one with the people, it was just great," said Lucille Frisicano, volunteer.
Making sure that the shelter was clean and sanitized and just keeping an overview of that. And since we're in a contained area with lots of different people, kids, elderly, just try to keep things sanitary."
The American Red Cross is always looking for new volunteers to help not only with natural disasters but also help out here at home
