Red Cross Continues to Staff Shelters While Preparing for Recovery

As the chapter prepares a disaster recovery plan the Red Cross continues to staff and provide mass care to 4 shelters.

1. Tolar Elementary School in Liberty County
2. Crawfordville Elementary School in Wakulla County
3. Florida High School… in Leon County
4. Taylor County Elementary School

The Red Cross is also preparing a service delivery plan for families affected by the storm that would include providing assistance based on their need.

Red Cross is also gearing up for disbursement of clean up kits to residents in the affected low lying areas of the Capital Area.

People can help those affected by Tropical Storm Debby by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Consider making a donation today by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. The Capital Area Chapter is accepting donations on their website: www.tallyredcross.org. Contributions may also be sent to your local Red Cross Chapter, 1115 Easterwood Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32311. Contributions enable the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to disasters.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
