Volunteer James Bagwell of Anahuac, Texas, stands in a Houston neighborhood Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008. Everyday after Hurricane Ike, Bagwell gave out items such as baby formula, cleaning supplies and toothbrushes to county residents whose homes were ruined in the storm. He made clothing runs, as well. "I went to Wal-Mart Friday night and I bought $2691 worth of underwear and T-shirts," says Bagwell. "People have lost everything. And they can get by with old clothes or anything like that, but they have to have, you know, feel like they're part of society, by having new underwear."
