Red Cross helping East Texans with recovery efforts
The Red Cross in Tyler has been working around the clock to collect and distribute supplies to support firefighters who have been out in the area battling widfires. They have also been on standby in case shelters were needed.
Now that evacuees are returning home, the Red Cross is ready to go out into the communities to assist people whose homes were destroyed or damaged by the fires. The organization delivers food and water to people who have no electricity. The Red Cross also delivers clean up kits to assist people who are in the process of assessing the damage to their property.
The Red Cross works with people on a case by case basis to help them assess their needs and begin the recovery process. This includes financial and legal assistance.
The organization has a rich online resource for those recovering from disaster.
The Red Cross also asks those who are interested in helping to consider financial donations to the organization. Learn more about online giving at www.redcross.org.
