The American Red Cross reached a milestone in flood recovery efforts this week.
The Rebuild Minot Mass Care Feeding program has delivered over 11-thousand meals and snacks to flood victims since the year's first outing on June 22nd.
The Red Cross sends an Emergency Response Vehicle throughout Minot every Friday through Sunday and delivers items such as sandwiches, bottled water, and mosquito spray to people working in their yards.
At the moment there are over 20 volunteers helping with the service.
Although there is a lot of progress being made in the Valley, Allan McGeough of the Mid-Dakota chapter of the Red Cross says there is still a need for the services provided by the truck.
(Allan McGeough,Executive Director--Mid-Dakota Chapter of American Red Cross)"There's still people out there who don't have running water in their homes and they're out there working. And so, a bottle of water may not seem like a big thing, but to a lot of those people who are out there working, it sure does help along the way."
The Red Cross truck will continue to deliver items in the Valley through Labor Day weekend.
