The American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter continues to support residents affected by Friday’s storms in the Greater St. Louis Area. The Red Cross will open a casework center to meet with clients who qualify* for Red Cross assistance following this storm:

Thursday, June 6 - Saturday, June 8, 2013, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Airport Elementary School (Ferguson-Florissant School District)

8249 Airport Road

Berkeley, MO 63134

*To qualify for Red Cross assistance at this casework center, clients must have experienced major damage to their home. To request assistance, affected residents can call (314) 516-2700.

Since the storm hit, dozens of Red Cross volunteers have served more than 5,400 meals and snacks to those affected by the storm, either at the Florissant shelter or by driving through the affected areas to visit residents and first responders. About two-dozen people spent the night at the shelter over the three nights it was open.

In response to flooding, the Red Cross is ready to open a shelter if the need arises.

The Red Cross is able to respond quickly when emergencies happen thanks to our generous donors. The American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter is a proud member agency of the United Way of Greater St. Louis, which makes significant investments every year in Red Cross services.
