I would definitely have a friend come with me or recommend that she sign up. I think it is very important to help the community in any way that we can. I love this city and the people in it and I am very very sad when I see some people who have no food or water and no clothes. It is very hard for me to see. I am free all of the time so whatever is needed I can always be there.
