Thanks to generosity of the public we’ve raised the funds we need for our Hurricane Dorian disaster response and recovery efforts. Since you launched a fundraising page for the relief efforts, we wanted to reach out and let you know that the American Red Cross is no longer accepting donations for Hurricane Dorian on CrowdRise. However, the Red Cross still needs your help with the nearly 62,000 disasters they respond to annually. You can start a fundraiser to support disaster relief by going to https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/arc-disaster-relief. To find out more information about how the Red Cross is responding to disasters, please visits www.redcross.org.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross!
Help people affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Last week, the devastating Hurricane Dorian pummeled the Bahamas and the eastern U.S. coast. Millions of people lived in areas threatened by the storm’s path. American Red Cross disaster responders worked around the clock to provide shelter, food, counseling, supplies and comfort for impacted communities, and we continue to do so.
The American Red Cross has committed an initial $2 million to support those affected in the Bahamas by Dorian, and is also helping evacuees arriving in the U.S.
The Red Cross is also working in close coordination with our partners at Palm Beach County Emergency Management to provide shelter in West Palm Beach, Florida for evacuees arriving from the Bahamas. In addition to offering safe haven as evacuees plan their next steps, the Red Cross will provide food, water, hygiene items, health services and emotional support. Volunteers will also help reconnect families and provide referrals to those in need with the generous support available through community resources.
