MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

A Moultrie couple arrived in Shreveport, Louisiana Wednesday 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 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 were handing out supplies Wednesday night and are prepared to stay in Louisiana for a few weeks. 

Anyone interested can donate to flood victims here at the Red Cross's website.
