“We’re helping someone in need, somebody we’re never going to meet,” he said. “But, we’re being able to touch them in a time when they’ve lost everything.”
They’ll go to Hurricane Michael, Florence, and Willa victims, as well as flooding victims in India.
“This is just a part of who we are,” Gibson said. “Our team members love to be able to participate in this, it’s just a fantastic effort.”
