Dozens of local Red Cross volunteers set to help in Texas

Dozens of local Red Cross volunteers set to help in Texas

Other than responding to natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey, Red Cross offers emergency hotel stays, food and clothing for those who are displaced as a result of natural or manmade disasters, including house fires, floods, hazardous material spills and auto accidents. After they started investigating where Red Cross funds for Superstorm Sandy were going, they discovered serious mismanagement.

McFarland says the only cost for a volunteer is time.

"Thus admitting to challenges is acknowledging reality (not failure)".

Local Red Cross volunteers have already been dispatched to help the relief efforts.
