Local volunteers heading to California

PARADISE, Calif — American Red Cross volunteers from Medford and Grants Pass drove down to California yesterday.

Right now, they’re setting up a warehouse to get emergency supplies to people who need them.

Afterwards,  they will go to affected areas where they will be giving out disaster kits as well as food and water.

“We’ll be looking for anyone one up there that needs help, including people’s pets that have been abandoned or couldn’t get out,” said Bryan Wallis, American Red Cross volunteer. “And that, you know, just needs to be done.”
