Volunteers from the American Red Cross, Serving Erie & Niagara Counties have opened a shelter at St. John’s Lutheran Church, located at 3512 Clinton Street in West Seneca, for area residents displaced by flooding. The American Red Cross of Southwestern New York has also opened a shelter at Silver Creek Assembly of God, 1385 Route 20 in Silver Creek, for residents forced to evacuate due to flooding around Sunset Bay. Volunteers will keep both shelters open as long as it is deemed necessary.
All Red Cross is assistance is free, and we rely on the generosity of the American public to provide these vital services to the community. Anyone wishing to help people affected by fires, flooding or other disasters is asked to consider donating to the Disaster Relief Fund by calling 1-800-REDCROSS, visiting www.redcross.org, or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to charge a $10 donation to their cell phone bill.
