American Red Cross Around West Virginia
The Conkey family of Morgantown, WV, said the snow was so heavy their roof collapsed. They boarded up two rooms of their home and were heating with a small propane heater. After 7 days, they came to the feeding site in Buckhannon hoping to get the contact information for FEMA. They were surprised when they were offered blankets, food, water and snacks. They said they had no idea that so many people were outside their community caring for others. Their gratitude showed by the emotions and tears they shared with some of the volunteers who offered emotional support.
Jason Cane, a resident of Buckhannon, WV, asks for water. Received food, water and blankets. With wife and 2 small kids at home with no heat, they had been drinking water from a nearby creek. Jason was encouraged to take his family to the Red Cross shelter. With tears streaming down his face and barely able to speak, he thanked the volunteers and left without saying if he would go to the shelter or not.
