American Red Cross volunteer deployed to California

Flooding is currently plaguing us here on the East Coast, but people on the West Coast are still trying to recover after thousands were displaced by wildfires.
The American Red Cross is deploying volunteers from all over to assist with ongoing wildfire response in California, including disaster volunteer Robert Brown. So far volunteers there have provided nearly 11,000 overnight shelter stays and more than 81,000 meals and snacks to the victims.

"It just feels great," says Brown. "I mean anytime you can help somebody get out of trouble or help them out when they are in distress, it really helps you feel good."
When asked what he'll be doing there specifically he replied "I'll be doing client casework. Helping them to find locations to stay and helping them get back on their feet."

Brown is one of the more than 700 American Red Cross Volunteers who have been helping the wildfire victims in California. The volunteers have been very busy this year, Brown included. He recently returned a couple of weeks ago from helping victims of the wildfires in Washington State.
