Those Who Came to Help




The tent city set-up at the airfield in Gulfport for some the National Guard units that were deployed to the Coast.


A POD( point of distribution), water, ice and food were distribued at these places and until the last week or two were manned by National Guard units. This is where I would receive MRE's(Meals Ready to Eat). I would drive through open the trunk and water, ice, and MRE's would be stuffed in there and then they would load the back seat.





A Red Cross volunteer from Michigan. The Red Cross trucks would deliver hot lunches and dinners to those in D'Iberville, Biloxi, Gulfport, and other cities along the coast.





Salvation Army volunteers. The lady on the right is from Canada, the couple in the yellow shirts from Kansas City, and the man on the left is from Virginia. They are now delivering hot meals in D'Iberville.
