Missouri Red Cross Volunteers In Florida

(Jefferson City) Red Cross volunteers from Missouri and Arkansas are being deployed to help Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian.

It hit the Sunshine State Wednesday as a category four storm.

The Red Cross’s Rebecca Gordon says teams consisting of two drivers will deploy four Emergency Response Vehicles, or E-R-V’s, to Florida this week from various parts of our region.

In addition to helping in Florida, the Red Cross has recovery crews in Puerto Rico for Hurricane Fiona, a typhoon in Alaska and the wildfires on the West Coast.

If you’re able to, you can make a gift to Red Cross Disaster Relief at red-cross-dot-org or by calling 800-RED-CROSS.
