An Oahu mental health volunteer is flying out tomorrow to Arizona to help with the Red Cross response to the deadly wildfire. This brings the total number of Hawaii Red Cross volunteers deployed to 10.
The Red Cross is responding to several wildfires in the West as well as flooding in several Eastern states with food, shelter, relief supplies and emotional support. To support these efforts, please make a donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief at redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS. People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
