Volunteers from Standpoint, Idaho, and New Orleans, assisted residents on the East coast affected by Hurricane Sandy. The trip in March was organized by Forward Edge International, of Vancouver. “When the team members from New Orleans heard that Forward Edge International was responding to Sandy, they were interested in going because they had their homes and church worked on by FEI teams after Hurricane Katrina,” said Laura Strahan, co-coordinator of teams for Forward Edge. Some Camas and Washougal residents have provided relief in the U.S. and in other countries on trips coordinated by the non-profit organization.
