BENEFITING: American Red Cross
We need your help to support the American Red Cross while it's mounting a massive relief operation in Baton Rouge and other areas affected by the historic flood. Please join me in supporting this important humanitarian effort. In less than 96 hours following this disaster, the Red Cross dispatched an army of volunteers to our community—nearly 1,500 Red Crossers from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are responding to the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Superstorm Sandy. The Red Cross has also mobilized more than 60 disaster response vehicles, nearly 40,000 ready-to-eat meals, and more than two dozen trailer loads of shelter and kitchen supplies to bolster relief efforts. Some of the supplies arriving include water, personal hygiene items, insect repellant, cleaning kits, bleach and other important supplies. In the days and weeks to come, disaster workers and volunteers will begin moving into impacted areas to assess damage and continue providing meals, relief items and cleanup supplies as well as emotional support. Their work wouldn’t be possible without our support. Let's all come together and help our community.
