Super Sunday: No Suitcases

Every Sunday I write about one of the joys of full-timing

On Red Cross disaster relief jobs, the volunteers are usually housed in local hotels. In very large disasters where lodging is damaged and scarce, they may be housed in shelters set up in schools, churches, etc.

Managing all those rooms takes a dedicated group of staffing volunteers who are trying their best to minimize the cost to the Red Cross. Sometimes this involves moving folks wholesale out of one hotel and into another with better rates.

As our fellow volunteers scramble to pack their suitcases and move across town, I am so grateful that we can do this work while living in our RV. Our membership in the DOVES means we sleep in our own bed every night, and it is very nice.
