Moose 3 has begun their work doing tornado relief down south. It was bittersweet to leave Vacamas Camp inNew Jersey. The staff was amazing and the area was beautiful yet we were excited to be able to lend a hand in Alabama! We are currently staying in Moundville, Alabama and staying with another team which now makesus Moofalo 7. Figure it out! We are working in a donation warehouse sorting clothes, toiletries, food, shoes, toys, etc. We are theonly warehouse in the area that is a distribution center meaning victims come and receive necessities. We areable to talk to the clients and hear their stories which are humbling. It proves our work is truly impacting thecommunity and really shows us that what were doing here is making a difference.For example one day a woman came in and her presence was one of fear, loss and confusion.

She lost herhouse, furniture, clothes, everything dear to her and yet no child of Mother Nature, no matter how horrendous,
