Helping the Victims of Hurricane Harvey

From: Linda Yoskowitz, Northern Colorado Red Cross

Many of you have been asking what the best way is to help with the Texas disaster.  Please donate money and blood. We are in desperate need of both.  The Red Cross has shelters in Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.  Your money will go to shelter supplies, such as cots and blankets.  We have several mega shelters set up that can house up to 5,000 people, and these are overflowing.

Please also consider volunteering and deploying.  We are currently doing a massive training push that will provide all the training and information you will need to deploy.  More to come on that.  Please keep not just the victims but all the responders in your prayers.  Don’t hesitate to contact me at linda.yoskowitz2@redcross.org if you have any questions.
