Rose City Mayor Bonnie Stephenson is appearing on NBC's Megyn Kelly TODAY at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, to talk about the devastation Hurricane Harvey wreaked upon the small town and the ongoing recovery efforts led by grassroots organization CAN-DO and its CEO Eric Klein, who has been in Rose City for weeks lending a helping hand to the heavily impacted, and mostly uninsured, community.

The episode featuring Stephenson and Klein is part of Megyn Kelly TODAY's "People Helping People" series. Stephenson will discuss the impacts Harvey had on Rose City and how Klein and the CAN-DO crew swept in to help following the storm, staying on to help even as other volunteer groups withdrew. Stephenson said CAN-DO has been enormously helpful, a subject she will talk more about during her interview on NBC. 

CAN-DO (Compassion into Action Network - Direct Outcome Organization) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that "donors can count on to get the job done," according to its website, "From natural disasters to humanitarian crises, we provide critical aid to communities who need it most in a timely and transparent manner. We are not tied down by politics or bureaucracy, and do not delay delivery of lifesaving resources by getting caught up in the red tape. We are dedicated to providing lasting, self-sustainable solutions for people facing some of the world's most critical problems. We go anywhere in the world and do whatever it takes to get the job done."

Tune in to NBC Wednesday, Dec. 6, to learn more about Klein and his CAN-DO attitude.
