Wonder what the American Red Cross has done so far in Joplin, MO?
Here are some statistics, as of Friday evening:
Total number of ERV (Emergency Response Trucks) here: 19 (I've seen Ohio, South Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, Virginia - and numerous other states who are here)
Total meals served: 44,337 (and every one of them has been delicious, believe me!)
Total snacks served: 81,184 (I think I've eaten about 40,252 of these....)
Bulk clean-up & recovery items distributed: 27,831
Total people who've spent the night in a Red Cross shelter: 2,342
Total number of Red Cross workers/volunteers here: 555
Total number of bruises, scrapes and cuts on the Drama Queen's body: 14 (and rising - got a new one today on my middle finger. BANGED it into something and I've got a pretty good black & blue bump.)
Total number of hours before my family is here to see me on my day off: 4 (jumping up and down with excitement!)
Total number of days before I get to go home: Who knows?
