of the Red Cross warehouse.
In recent days, more than 17 truckloads of supplies including personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, lanterns, tents, sleeping bags, rakes, tarps, gloves, flashlights, colors and insect repellent has arrived.
“We want to get the product out to the client because they are ones who are needing it and they are needing it now,” Bos said.

“I don’t see where anything we do shouldn't be concerned with the donor dollar,” he said. “They are ones who are paying for this and we need to respect that.”
Bos, who retired after an Air Force career, said he is volunteering with the Red Cross because “it’s time to give back to the community.
”It’s a job with long hours and no pay, but Bos said his reward is knowing that what he is doing is helping those in need.
“You can’t put a dollar figure on it,” he said.
