Red Cross Seeking Monetary Donations for Hurricane Relief Red Cross Seeking Monetary Donations for Hurricane Relief

All the money goes toward supplying food, shelter clothing and counseling to the victims of this and other disasters natural or man-made. Trailers full of shelter supplies including cots and blankets-enough to support more than 20,000 people-are scheduled to arrive in Texas.

This is not the only place volunteers are going, three local volunteers were sent to Cle Elum Thursday morning to manage the Red Cross shelter there. "It may be slow at first as our systems continue to catch up with all the volunteers we're training, but we have a great pipeline of local people ready and willing to help".

More than half of the Red Cross emergency response fleet - 200 emergency response vehicles - have been activated for the operation. The Red Cross is also working in close collaboration with government officials and community partners in both Texas and Louisiana to coordinate potential response efforts.

As rain and floodwaters from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey recede, the Red Cross is pouring resources into the area to help flood victims with the aid of partner agencies.

Proceeds from last night's 50/50 raffle, plus a match from Cubs Charities and a generous player matching contribution, will be donated to the American Red Cross, which will help them to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from this disaster. The best way to ensure your donation will go to a specific disaster is to write the specific disaster name in the memo line of a check.

FOX, ABC & CW here in Alaska had the opportunity to speak to the American Red Cross of Alaska's Regional Communications Manager Lisa Miller, about the devastating consequences of Hurricane Harvey. Tauscheck notes that, despite the hard work and no pay, the retention rate for Red Cross volunteers is high.

The American Red Cross provides programs and services to a population of 8.8 million in New Jersey. "Not to the normal they used to have, but to their new normal", Broomfield.
