BRYAN COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - Bryan County school bus driver Krisi Teubner was out till 1 a.m. Tuesday helping drop off people to local shelters following the deadly storm.

But even then she felt she needed to do more.

“A lot of people don’t have a lot right now. But for me, I’ve got eggs, I’ve got a skillet,” said Teubner.

So, she took her skillet and eggs, all five dozen of them, along with a generator and set up shop here in the parking lot of Bryan County High School.

“I’m just trying to help where I can with what I’ve got. If the shoe was on the other foot someone would do it for me,” Teubner said.

As people came, she cooked, to the best of her ability.

“I’m not the best cook but I try baby,” Teubner joked.

While some came for food, others came to help.

Like Bryan County Animal Control Manager Laura Lewis.

“I saw a post this morning that she was going to come out here and provide breakfast. So, I said, ‘welp, lets go give them some dog and cat food so that way if anybody needs it, they know they can come here.’”

Her actions causing a sort of chain reaction of kindness

“It says a lot, it says a lot about this community it says a lot about this town. I’m proud to be part of this town and community. We stick together through everything,” said Bryan County High School football coach Cherard Freeman, who stopped by to drop off water.

Krisi and her community offering what they can, even if it’s as simple as just being there.

“I’m here for anyone who needs a hug, who needs a handheld, this is devastating. I know what it’s like to lose everything, to not have power, not to have a hot meal. I’m here if they need it,” Teubner said.
