Now, with Hurricane Irene, there is a need more than ever!
From the Red Cross website:
“Sunday, August 28, 2011 — Mandatory evacuations and power outages have forced people from their homes all over the east coast and more than 27,000 spent Saturday night in Red Cross shelters.”
People have been homeless and hungry.
Shelter at Nassau Community College in Garden City NY reached capacity by 6pm.
Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicles are staging in Raleigh NC before Hurricane
The 2011 Atlantic Hurricane season started on June 1 and lasts until the end of November. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that 12-18 named storms, 6-10 hurricanes and 3-6 major hurricanes could occur this year.
“While it is too early to know the full extent of the storm’s damage, the Red Cross expects to be helping people for the next several weeks.
The Red Cross has relief operations ongoing in more than a dozen states and thousands of disaster workers helping people from North Carolina to New England. Every Red Cross feeding truck east of theRocky Mountains – more than 250 – are set to go into neighborhoods as soon as conditions permit. Tens of thousands of pre-packaged meals are in position, and the Red Cross is working with its community partners to have feeding kitchens in place after the storm moves through.
