Dozens of residents, including Angela Tauscher are picking up tarps, brooms and other supplies at the Red Cross distribution center at Bethel Church in Chehalis, Wash. after receiving assistance at the co-located service center. Angela lost the bottom floor of her home to flood waters that is now, inches of thick of smelly mud. “I just want my kids back together,” she said. All four of Angela’s kids, ages six and under, are staying in separate places with friends and family, until they can be reunited in one, clean home again. The supplies being unloaded by Red Cross volunteers at the distribution site will help Angela repair her home and her family just in time for Christmas.
