A Moultrie couple arrived in Shreveport, Louisiana to volunteer to help flood victims. 

Connie and Mark Fleetwood are Red Cross volunteers.

They drove an emergency response vehicle to Madisonville first, but were later told their help was needed in Shreveport. 

Connie said she and her husband have helped to hand out meals and supplies.

They plan to stay as long as their help is needed.

"Mark and I are always ready to do whatever the Red Cross needs," said Connie. "We have been blessed most of our lives and this is just our way of giving back. Quite honestly, it's kind of adventurous because we never know, from day to day, what we're going to be doing.  And we kind of like that."

The Fleetwoods are handing out supplies right now, and are prepared to stay in Louisiana for a few weeks.
