Traverse City Community Honors Red Cross Volunteers After Sandy Cleanup

Posted: Updated:

Local volunteers are back home this morning, after helping with Superstorm Sandy cleanup efforts.

The American Red Cross deployed fourteen volunteers from the area to help victims piece their lives back together.

Tonight, those volunteers were honored by the Red Cross and the Community for their help.

One of those volunteers is a registered nurse and says she's wanted to volunteer since Hurricane Katrina swept through New Orleans, a few years ago.

She says the damages she saw as a result of Superstorm Sandy were incredible, houses completely pushed off their foundations and streets covered with sand.

The Red Cross says they will continue to have volunteers on the East Coast, until they are sure that everybody has a safe place to go.
