Updated: Jun 6

Shaunda Waltz of Greenfield, Iowa left work early Monday afternoon to come to the Adair County Multi-Agency Resource Center at Nodaway Valley Elementary School. She talked with American Red Cross recovery volunteers at the school and picked up some cleanup supplies outside.

“It's just wonderful how all the people came in here in the first week, distributing food, going door to door,” she said. “It was just amazing that we didn't have to stop what we were doing… that made the biggest difference.  It’s life-saving when you don't know how you’re going to cook your next meal.”

Waltz was grateful for all the assistance from the entire community after the storm. Many Greenfield residents who were cleaning up after the storm didn’t have a place to cook meals, so several community groups stepped forward to provide three meals a day.

“It was just beautiful!” she said of her community.

The Red Cross Resource Center will remain open at Nodaway Valley Community Elementary School this week. If you have been displaced by the tornadoes and are in need of supplies, please visit. Trained Red Cross volunteers are available to assess physical, mental and spiritual health needs, to open individual assistance cases and to provide totes, cleanup kits and other disaster recovery supplies as needed.
