In the wake of Monday's tornadoes in Oklahoma, volunteers are being deployed from around the country to assist in the recovery, including a woman from Philadelphia.
Danelle Stoppel, a volunteer mental health supervisor with the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania, will leave at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday to fly to the tornado-ravaged area. It will be Stoppel's 13th disaster deployment in just two years volunteering with the organization, helping her earn the nickname "Deployment Danelle."
"My role is a transition role. My role is that I understand what's happened to them and I understand that they are faced with having to do it again - get another home," said the 67-year-old Fairmount resident.
