Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Among the many from our area who've been heading to Oklahoma to help with relief efforts is the spokeswoman for Catholic Charities in our area.
Carol Spruell left today for a week's worth of work in helping the people of Moore on the way to recovery.
While in Oklahoma, she'll help with the organization's social media, fundraising and communications. Spruell says the response from people across the nation has already been overwhelming.
"Just like with any disaster - in Louisiana - the outpour of support the volunteers and stacks and stacks of donations is overwhelming,” said Spruell. “Every time I see a disaster like this for the first time, it beings back a lot of memories.”
Spruell says they aren't allowed to go outside of the disaster site right now, but she says she passed through much of the area on her way in from the airport.
NBC33 will update progress in Moore throughout the next week.
