The American Red Cross West Virginia responded to homes damaged in multiple counties throughout West Virginia. The Red Cross provided safe shelter, food, emergency relief supplies, emotional support and recovery assistance to families impacted.
This is a difficult time for many families unexpectedly forced from their homes – and Red Cross disaster mental health workers are helping people cope. Health workers are helping to replace needed items like prescription medications and eyeglasses.
As flooding recedes and roads become passible, the Red Cross teams will be out in communities assessing the damage to homes, passing out cleaning supplies, toiletries, meals, snacks and water.
People can help by donating to the Red Cross by visiting redcross.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS. Donations to the Red Cross enable us to help people prepare for, respond to and recover from flood and other disasters.
