The American Red Cross continues to provide assistance to residents throughout the region following this week’s powerful storms.
In Hazelwood, a 24-hour Red Cross shelter remains open at the Hazelwood Civic Center at 8969 Dunn Road. Staff and volunteers are providing food, shelter and emotional support to residents in need. This shelter will remain open as long as there is a need. Friday night, 10 people spent the night in the Red Cross shelter in Hazelwood. As of last night, Red Cross volunteers had served about 290 meals and 380 snacks to those affected by the storms. The shelter is also staffed with a Red Cross volunteer nurse.
Saturday, Red Cross staff and volunteers are doing mobile meal delivery in the affected neighborhoods in Hazelwood, serving lunch to volunteers, emergency responders and residents.
Red Cross caseworkers continue to assist families in the affected areas of Hazelwood as well as in Sullivan, MO.
More than 50 disaster responder volunteers are part of this response and recovery effort. Carrying out the mission of the American Red Cross – to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies – would not be possible without the work of our dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our donors. Some 2,000 volunteers power our mission throughout the Greater St. Louis Region.
