Gaylin DenOuden, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, talks about the efforts of the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee, "Greenshirts" Assessment Team in Schoharie on Tuesday afternoon.
The “greenshirts” (volunteers doing needs assessment for Schoharie Area Long Term) are in Schoharie County, from March 12 until March 23 looking for people who were affected by the floods following Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee last August.
