While I gave examples of our relief efforts in Cave Spring ( because I was speaking in Floyd County ) and Ringgold (because it was impacted the hardest), I also explained our efforts in all of the six counties in our chapter’s coverage that were affected. Bartow, Catoosa, Dade, Floyd, Walker, and Gordon counties all were impacted and received some or all of the following relief operations: shelters, mobile and fixed site feeding, client casework, clean-up kits, comfort kits, health and mental health contacts, and bulk item distribution. Although headquartered in Rome, the Northwest Georgia Chapter serves 10 counties with staffed and volunteer offices throughout the area.
