The Red Cross is providing help and comfort to people along the Gulf Coast as power outages linger and communities begin the path to recovery. Our extensive relief efforts include providing food, shelter, relief supplies and comfort for people, and the Red Cross will be in the area for weeks helping people get back on their feet.
Monday night, approximately 830 people stayed in 16 Red Cross or community shelters in Louisiana and Mississippi. As clean-up efforts progress, Red Cross shelters remain available for anyone in need.
We need your help now. Red Cross relief services for Isaac could cost tens of millions of dollars. We need the continued support of the public to help those in need. To donate, people can visit www.redcross.org/donate, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
