The Red Cross is mobilizing trained disaster relief workers, kitchen supplies, and ready to eat meals to help in areas affected by Harvey.

More than 125 Red Cross emergency response vehicles have been activated in Texas.  The Red Cross is working with government officials in Texas and Louisiana to coordinate response efforts.

 

 

“The Palmetto South Carolina Region has deployed 31 volunteers to areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. We’re thankful for the dedication of volunteers and staff who are willing to help those in need,” said Louise Welch Williams, Regional CEO.  “We remember in SC the comfort that Red Cross volunteers from across the nation can bring.”
