How to Help the Red Cross Respond to Harvey”

Upwards of 35 inches of rain are expected. The organization has also sent truckloads of kitchen supplies as well as tens of thousands of ready-to-eat meals. The Red Cross has trailers full of shelter supplies including cots and blankets, the Red Cross said.

Dozens of Los Angeles firefighters have been deployed to Texas to help with search and rescue efforts after Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Gulf Coast. "We're thankful for the dedication of volunteers that are willing to help those in need and advance the humanitarian mission".

The Red Cross said more than 125 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are activated and 3 of those are from SC.

The first of two emergency response vehicles from the D.C. area left for Texas Sunday morning.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army will be involved with disaster relief efforts, providing shelter, fresh drinking water, food, toiletries, clothes, bedding and other necessities.

Emergency responders and Red Cross working round the clock to meet people's physical and medical needs. The Red Cross honors donor intent. You can simply donate by texting "HARVEY" to 90999. We also recommend completing and mailing the donation form on redcross.org with your check.

"I expect we (Red Cross) will be there for some time".

Red cross volunteers from across the country are heading down the hardest hit communities, including the 16 volunteers from Nebraska.

As we receive information from local governmental agencies, we will relay that information to the public as well.

All Red Cross services are free and available to everyone.

When looking for an outlet on how to be of help, the best avenues are to plug in with those who are already mobilizing to respond to the storm.
