Red Cross Relief Efforts for Sandy Storm Victims

Hurricane Sandy has been a devastating event for thousands of people on the east coast and an epic storm affecting more than a dozen states, from Virginia to Rhode Island and from Ohio to New Jersey.  The Red Cross, and a legion of volunteers, provide relief large and small – from combs and toothbrushes in individual “comfort kits” to blankets, beds and meals in an emergency shelter. Maree Wacker, Regional Executive for the Oregon Red Cross joined us today to tell us more about these relief efforts and how we can help.

To donate, people can visit redcross.org call 1-800-RED CROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
