(WBNG) — Three Southern Tier volunteers will fly out Friday to Georgia to help those in need.

Lisa Cass of Kirkwood, Diane Dellacorino-Thomas of Harpursville, and Brigid Shipman of Ithaca will help support relief efforts from Hurricane Michael.

They will help with shelters, passing out warm meals, and much more.

Hurricane Michael has caused widespread damage in the Gulf Coast.

The American Red Cross says it put together enough shelter supplies to help 15,000 people.

“You just get such a good feeling when you’re helping our local community and then our fellow Americans in the states that need it,” said Dellacorino-Thomas. “They’re so appreciative and you just get so much more back than you give.”

A total of eight volunteers between Western and Central New York are helping out.
