Posted: |September 14th, 2018|, 1:40 pm
About 2,000 Red Cross disaster workers from all over the U.S. have been mobilized to help shelter, feed, and support people affected by Florence. Working with partners, the Red Cross has served 47,000 meals and snacks in North Carolina and South Carolina. To bolster relief efforts, the Red Cross is mobilizing nearly 100 emergency response vehicles and more than 120 trailers of equipment and supplies, including 100,000 ready-to-eat meals and enough cots and blankets for more than 42,000 people.
Hurricane Florence has impacted life saving blood and platelet donations. Many blood drives in the storm's path were cancelled. The Red Cross is asking donors in non-impacted areas to please donate blood now.
The American National Red Cross is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
