Bismarck Couple Deploys to Arizona

Posted: Updated:

While many celebrate the 4th of July weekend, those suffering the outcome of the Arizona wildfires are taking refuge in American Red Cross shelters.

Two volunteers from Bismarck deployed Saturday to help those in need.

Dana and Gene Bischke have been Red Cross volunteers for seven years.

They became involved after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

Dana and Gene became aware of the need for volunteers in Arizona and felt this was something they needed to do.

"It'll be kind of interesting for us to see what we're going to be doing once we get there and actually get an assignment. And we don't always know where we're going to be at any given day. You just go with knowing it could be a long day it could be a short day but we just know that we're helping and that's the important part," says Dana and Gene Bischke, Bulk Distribution Supervisors.

If you would like more information on ways to help those affected by disasters, go to www.redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
