Robert Jones, of Elk Run Heights, will begin his trip to Jackson, Mississippi tomorrow.

He will assist with Red Cross health services.

Darla Jones, a member of the American Red Cross of the Tri-States and the owner/operator of Winneshiek Wildberry Wineries, will also head to Jackson, Mississippi.

She will spend two weeks helping victims.

Mississippi and Alabama were devastated by tornadoes on Saturday, April 24th.
