"There are people still in New York who are without power," Lundstrom said. "There are people still in New York who are in hotels and have not been able to find permanent housing and anything I can do to help the Red Cross help them, I am up for that."
On Saturday Red Cross responder Phoenix Lundstrom is leaving the South Plains behind and heading to New York.
"I don't know what I am walking into in New York," Lundstrom said. "I don't know what the resources are so I will have to play catch up. I will have to work very hard very quickly to become knowledgeable, so I can become affective."
Lundstrom is taking her second trip to the Northeast to continue her work with those affected by Superstorm Sandy.
"It's not just a question of people losing everything, their homes, their belongings, their memories," Lundstrom said. "It's a community that has been lost. It is a city that has been lost. It's a whole coastline part of a state that has been lost."
Lundstrom's first tour was spent helping those on the coast of New Jersey get back on their feet-the same thing she will be doing in New York.
"The goal was to find out what they needed to accomplish in order to move from the hotel into permanent housing," Lundstrom said.
Lundstrom is a life long Red Cross volunteer who is continuing her work here in Lubbock after moving to the Hub City from Hawaii.
"I think the answer has to do with my belief that those who have received much in life need to give back," Lundstrom said. "And I have certainly been blessed in my lifetime."
