Red Cross sending volunteers & vehicles from SC to TX”

Volunteers from the Greater Phoenix Chapter began joining the relief effort on August 24 before the storm was upgraded to a Category 4 Hurricane.

The American Red Cross is looking to deploy 4,000 disaster relief volunteers to Texas over the next several weeks. The National Weather Service is calling the event "unprecedented", noting 15 to 25 inches of rainfall, with some areas of Southeastern Texas potentially receiving as much as 50 inches.

While Harvey may soon weaken to a tropical depression, it's now stalled over the region and continues to pound the area with catastrophic wind and rain, which officials believe will last for "four to five days" and cause "catastrophic flooding". He helped at a shelter past year in SC after Hurricane Matthew.

The flooding continued in Texas on Sunday, where streets have turned into rivers.

"The American Red Cross is helping the people affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and all across the Gulf coast". The supplies include cots, blankets, ready-to-eat meals, comfort kits and cleaning supplies.

The Red Cross is also mobilizing its disaster partners to support feeding, child care, disaster assessment and other disaster services. Supplies for an additional 22,000 people are on the way.

The Red Cross is not a government agency and depends on public contributions to help others.

One hundred percent of donations will go to the Red Cross relief effort, and you receive a confirmation e-mail after the transaction.

Training for new volunteers will be offered Saturday, August 26th at the American Red Cross office, 4240 Boonville Rd, Bryan, TX 77802.
