LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Some parts of Maine were barely hit by Sandy's storm surges, but disaster relief volunteers are still mobilizing -- not to help at home, but to travel where Sandy hit the hardest.
The American Red Cross in Maine plans to deploy between 20 and 30 volunteers to New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania by Wednesday.
"It's an honor to serve the American people, and an honor to be called," said volunteer Eddie Burgess, who is on his way to help storm victims in New York.
"We were all very worried about our families here in this state and I think once that passed, everyone was able to get really excited about going donw and helping out our neighbors," said Jennifer Gaylord, manager of the United Valley Red Cross branch in Lewiston.
Gaylord said the American Red Cross is asking for more volunteers and donations to help Sandy storm victims.
