Red Cross officials say the need for shelters has gone down so they're preparing volunteers for the mass distribution of food and supplies to people affected by the hurricanes.

Disaster responders from the Red Cross in OR and southwest Washington are on the ground in Texas and Florida helping communities devastated by the two hurricanes with shelter, food, water, cleanup supplies and recovery assistance. The Red Cross is working closely with the entire response community - government agencies, other nonprofit groups, faith-based organizations, area businesses and others - to coordinate emergency relief efforts and get help to people as quickly as possible.

The retailer announced Monday that the company will donate 10 cents to the American Red Cross from every fountain and frozen "Chill Zone" beverage purchased from Monday, Sept. 18 to Sunday, Sept. 24.
