NE Wisconsin Response To Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but it's still taking a toll on residents. "We're thankful for the dedication of volunteers that are willing to help those in need and advance the humanitarian mission". The typical three hour drive between the cities took about four with all the rain, requiring Perkins to pull over and wait out parts of the storm.

Red Cross said they are working with many community partners and governmental agencies to ensure that needed relief arrives in a timely manner.

The Red Cross depends on financial donations to be able to give immediate relief in disaster situations, and Benjamin said there is an urgent need for donations.

To donate to the Red Cross, text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

If you want to help but can't respond to disasters, Mike Mitchell, the executive director of the local chapter of the Red Cross, advised giving blood.

Another member of the Connecticut Red Cross team, Stefanie Arcangelo said recovery efforts have been nonstop but their number one priority has been safety and providing shelter. We also recommend completing and mailing the donation form on redcross.org with your check. She said the American Red Cross piqued her interest because of the different volunteer opportunities.

The American Red Cross provides programs and services to a population of 8.8 million in New Jersey.

Western Massachusetts is represented among the Red Cross volunteers from all over the country doing humanitarian work in the hurricane ravaged areas of Texas.

This is the first disaster relief operation for both Komerska and Morin.
