HAAM reported that they and The Mission are both seeing some flood victims. Millie stated that perhaps CRTF should send out a press release on the “dos & don’ts” of what to do after a flood. She stated that people tried to help some of the flood victims but pictures of the damage were not taken before the damage was ripped out so insurance adjustors and FEMA adjustors were not able to help some people. HAAM is also working on food for free lunches for the summer for kids.
