La Pine City Councilor, Stu Martinez is now in Tennessee as an American Red Cross volunteer to help with the tornado disasters. The Oregon Mountain River Chapter spokesman Tom Farley says Martinez will be working as a logistics warehouse supervisor, a job that he's well skilled at. "He’s received 30 hours of class and skill experience. So he's one of our more skilled. Kinda the swat team of disaster action response. And he's available. So, at the national level, they put out an email to all American Red Cross Chapters and as do you have people with these skills and then are these skilled people available? And, thank God, Stu was able to answer yes to both." Farely says Martinez will be helping out for about three weeks. He says there has been so many disasters over the past six weeks that resources are wearing thin. If you would like to help, money is always the best option. You can donate several ways: by going to Redcross.org, or calling 1-800-Red Cross, or texting the word "REDCROSS" and 90999. or you could always drop a check off at the red cross office on Twin Knolls Drive.
