The American Red Cross representative for this incident and several other volunteers came to meet our group of homeowners, neighbors, resident volunteers, and the men from Texas that have been battling flames, flare ups, putting out smoldering fires, and digging fire line where it is needed and we can assist on top of the mountain.
She was touched when she heard the story about a group of Texans driving non-stop from over 2,000 miles away to help in any way possible.
A great big thank you to the American Red Cross that has been on scene in the valley as quickly as possible and has been providing case after case of bottled water, gatorade, snacks, delicious hand made meals, and much more to our group of ‘firefighters’ who have worked tirelessly night and day. There wasn’t a time that I picked up a gatorade bottle and took a long drink that I didn’t think about those volunteers and donors that are a part of the American Red Cross’ efforts.
We also want to thank our wives and other ladies and young girls of our community for preparing meals, distributing goods, taking up slack at home while their husbands are gone around the clock, taking care of the children, and keeping things running smoothly in the background throughout this crisis. It’s all a team effort and its wonderful to have such ladies on your team!
Thank you so much!!!
