assigned to work in a warehouse full of donated goods in nearby Northport, AL.The atmosphere of the warehouse is slightly hectic, with shipments being broughtin and out nonstop and hundreds of different volunteers every day, with only familiar faces to guide us through our tasks. We have been assigned to differentdepartments of the warehouse: Tracy manages the Toiletries section, Analisamanages the food section, Joe manages the diapers, LeeAnne is manager of clothes, and Nate has become the chief grill master and prepares volunteer meals,all while Billy drives shipments back and forth. Kevante works alongside Buffalo 2and Moose 3 at a Tuscaloosa location. Kevin had been working with the Red Cross
in Mississippi to alleviate the flood damages, but he came back to the “Force”.
 After several weeks, Kevante and Joe move their work to the 15
th
street location
assisting “clients” (people in need of support from the destruction of the storm)
 while the rest of the team works at 8
th
street, at one of the eight warehouses thatTES has stocked with emergency supplies. Buffalo Force sure has their work cutout for them, but they are eager to serve the citizens of Tuscaloosa.
