Kristna Hewett, left, a volunteer for the Red Cross, had just returned from West Point, Miss, where she assisted with the Hurricane Katrina cleanup when she was called in to help out at the Bonita Springs shelter during Hurricane Wilma. “At least there are no spiders or moldy buildings here like there were there,” she said as she took a quick break for lunch Sunday. Bill Valpey, right, another volunteer helping out at the YMCA shelter, has been in the South Lee County area since the late ’40s and joked that he was “just a bored retiree with nothing to do” so he decided to help out at the shelter.
