"There's been a major inflow of people, a major inflow of supplies," said volunteer Brian Moody. "Like I said earlier, it's not that this area has been overlooked. It's been overshadowed by the a greater disaster in Moore."

The American Red Cross along with Trans-Canada teamed together to help feed everyone.
