Red Cross Offers Help After Barry, How To Donate
Things aren't quite over yet for Tropical Storm / Hurricane Barry, but the American Red Cross is offering help for those affected. According to their website 'Anyone who needs a safe place to go can call 2-1-1, visit redcross.org or download the free Red Cross Emergency App.' They also remind everyone that 'Red Cross shelters are open to everyone in need, regardless of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or citizenship status. All disaster assistance is free. We don’t require people to show any kind of identification to enter a shelter — just their name and pre-disaster address.'
You are also asked to bring your own medications, pillows, blankets, extra clothing, important documents, hygiene items, and any items that might make it more comfortable for children coming with you.
If you would like to make a donation for those in need after Hurricane Barry, you can call 1-800-RED CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
