The Southwestern NY American Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) provided emergency relief for two separate disasters in Great Valley over the weekend. DAT volunteers Mike and Diane Kujawski of Franklinville, Mike Johnson of Great Valley, and Susan Folts of Knapp Creek were on scene to provide initial disaster assistance to the families. Temporary housing, clothing, and meals are services typically offered to address emergency needs. The local Red Cross chapter will continue working with the families and their recovery process if additional services or referrals are necessary.
All disaster assistance offered by the American Red Cross is complimentary and made possible by generous contributions from the American people and residents of Cattaraugus County. The United Way organizations of Cattaraugus County also provide financial support to the local Red Cross mission.
