The Thompson Local News

Two Thompsonites just got back from spending time managing a shelter for displaced residents in North Carolina.


Louise Hodder, who has been a volunteer with the Red Cross for around five years, spoke to Arctic Radio News about how she and her husband Mark Szyszlo ended up helping in the wake of Hurricane Florence.


Hodder said that the call came from the American Red Cross to the Canadian Red Cross in September, but that they did not respond.


When the call came around a second time, however, the reitred couple did respond and submitted an application to go.


One day later, Hodder said they recevied the green light to go, and the Red Cross had them on the ground within three days.


To hear from both Hodder and Szyszlo about their time in North Carolina, tune in to Thompson Today tomorrow afternoon.


Part one of the two-part interview air on 102.9 CHTM at 12:40pm and 5:10pm tomorrow (November 8th), with part two airing at the same times on Friday (November 9th).
