Gov. Malloy praises Red Cross volunteers

Ohio Red Cross Volunteers Deployed To Hurricane Relief Area

Numerous volunteers sent are working in the more than 200 Red Cross shelters that have been set up in Texas since the hurricane hit.

The impromptu concert at the cafe was just one example of Harvey relief efforts underway in Lynn.

As Harvey moves into Louisiana, more people will be displaced and will need rescuing.

The City of Pineville in partnership with Lindsey Wilson College London Campus, is collecting items for Hurricane Harvey victims, via Hope for Houston. "We need volunteers in Texas and then, because so many of our volunteers will be deployed, we need volunteers to step up here", she said.

KOIN 6 News, The Times' news partner, is among the Nexstar Broadcasting Group stations across the country supporting the American Red Cross in Harvey relief efforts.

There are enough shelter supplies, such as cots and blankets, for more than 50,000 people in Texas.




"If someone is interested in volunteering, please sign up now on redcross.org and start the application process, start the background check", she adds.

On Monday, emergency vehicles at the Red Cross in Farmington were packed up with supplies. But now, his focus is turning to things back here at home. "I would like to thank Walmart President and CEO, Doug McMillon for his generosity and challenge others to join in this effort". Help people affected by disasters like floods, wildfires and countless other crises by making a donation to support Red Cross Disaster Relief. You can also make a donation to your local Salvation Army unit, and note "Hurricane" on the memo line of your check.

The Red Cross depends on financial donations to be able to provide disaster relief immediately. "The people here are so generous and that just fuels the American Red Cross".

Wal-Mart's commitment to the American Red Cross centers on a campaign that will include customers.
