MADISONVILLE, MISS. (WATE) - Several volunteers from East Tennessee have made their way down to the gulf coast to help with Hurricane Isaac cleanup.
Around 25 volunteers from the Red Cross chapter in Knoxville are assisting people in 13 shelters in Madisonville, La.
A half dozen volunteers with the Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Department in Cocke County traveled to Pearlington, Miss. to help the people there.
Both groups say there is a lot of work to be done, and they hope the community here at home can still help.
"All this we're donating are free services. If people are in a position to donate we certainly would accept it at any of their local chapters," said John Manners, a Red Cross volunteer.
The Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Department also has a special fund set up to help the people in Mississippi.
Both groups are unsure how long they will be on the Gulf Coast. They say the major problems there are flooding, and people with no electricity.
