Due to the size of the population impacted by Hurricane Harvey, The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services Team anticipates this to be the largest and longest emergency response in the history of the organization in America.
"I have to make sure everyone's being safe. Also (I'll be) checking the food that's being served", he said.
Since 1900 the Salvation Army has responded to every major natural disaster providing food, water and shelter as well as financial, emotional and spiritual support. "So they request help from other divisions and other territories", he said.
"There's still approximately 6,000 people without power and there's still approximately 16,000 that are being sheltered and fed", said Jane Gendron, executive director.
Unemployment steady at 5.6pc as 54200 jobs added during August
The performance is the best for the state since November 2012, when the jobless rate was recorded as 5.4 per cent. The more stable trend unemployment rate also dropped - from 6.3 to 6.1 per cent.
All of the items collected will be donated to the Salvation Army of Northeast Florida's Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
"Since Harvey hit and now with Irma, we've had very generous donors", said Gendron.
"My stomping grounds, they were underwater", Zapata said.
Such agencies are not just calling for monetary donations, but also volunteers. Deployment lasts around 14 days.
