TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Help is on the way to the southeast for Hurricane Matthew aid relief. In fact, the Southern Arizona Red Cross has three volunteers helping out.

Tucson News Now met one of the volunteers on Friday morning, Oct. 7, before he left. Dennis Shaffer, has been with the Red Cross for two and a half years. Normally he is deployed to help the people of Tucson, but today he is going to the southeastern part of the country to lend a hand.

This is Shaffer's first deployment outside of Tucson. It has been an experience already. He was supposed to fly to Myrtle Beach, SC, but the airport has canceled all flights in and out of the airport.

Shaffer will be flying to Atlanta and then driving to Columbia, SC. Once he gets his assignment, he plans to help as much is he can with disaster relief.
