"We want to do our part when something bad is happening elsewhere in our nation because we want everyone to come and help us when we're having to face like a hurricane or a tornado," she said when talking to us via Skype from Madisonville, Louisiana. "I do feel hopeful that together with all of our partners we can help people begin that path on to recovery."
