Elderly East Texas man helps flood victims

The rebuilding process for Louisiana flood victims continues...

TYLER - Gary Garcee has been a volunteer with the American Red Cross for seven years now. He says, he's never seen anything as heartbreaking as the recent Louisiana flooding.

The 70 year old Vietnam veteran, church deacon, and Red Cross mass care supervisor for feeding was on a mission to serve hot meals to as many people as he possibly could.

"If we can just give them just a little bit of relief by taking them hot food you wouldn't believe how happy they are to see us." Garcee added.

He spent 14 days helping flood victims.  

Mr. Garcee is back in east Texas to rest, but says if he gets the call he'll once again face danger to help those in need. 

He told us "If you make a small difference in their life just a little small difference, a smile, a hug, let them know that you're thinking about them, and you're going to pray for them. That's what it's all about."

Recovery from the devastating Louisiana floods is still an ongoing process.

If you would like to help please contact the American Red Cross.
