David and Joyce Jeffries have been with the Rapid City Red Cross since the early 90's.
This week the couple packed up the Emergency Response Vehicle, and they're now working on the front lines of the Colorado floods.
Thousands of homes are destroyed, and lives have been lost in the Colorado floods. When there's a disaster of this magnitude, American Red Cross volunteers respond.
"There's a lot of people here out of their homes. A lot of people will remain out of their homes for quite a while," Red Cross volunteer, David Jeffries said.
David Jeffries is working with his team member, who also happens to be his wife, Joyce. The two are stationed in Northern Colorado, near Loveland.
David says the locals have already shown their appreciation for the Red Cross arrival.
"As I'm driving down the road, people are yelling at me and so on. And I have to make sure that there's not something wrong with my truck. No, what they're mouthing is thank you, welcome," Dave said.
The Jeffries are handing out comfort kits with hygiene products, food and other necessities. But they're also handing out cleaning supplies. Something that is crucial after the floodwaters recede.
"When a person comes back into their house after a flood, it's a terrible mess. There's a lot of mud, there will be mold. There's all kinds of crud. The clean up kits are an assistant to help them get their house back in order," Dave said.
Jeffries says these efforts to get people back on their feet wouldn't happen if it weren't for the generosity of the community.
"The cost of one of these operations and the stuff we give out, it costs quite a bit of money. And it's needed. And the money's got to come from somewhere. It comes from the American public," Dave said.
