The Journey Forward - Tyler

storm damage

October marks a year since devastating Hurricane Sandy ravaged the northeast. This massive superstorm displaced thousands, and the Red Cross was one of the first non-profits on the scene to provide aid.

Help us celebrate the over 600 amazing people in our own North Texas communities who gave their time, blood, and money to help those suffering.

As part of this event, you will hear from volunteers and families involved with the response effort for Hurricane Sandy. We will discuss planning for disasters in our local communities. Hear about the triumphs and lessons from Sandy and what the picture looks like moving forward for stronger and more resilient communities and a ready Red Cross.

As a sneak peak: MEET TOM AND JEANNE GARGIULO, a family from New York traveling to DFW to personally thank those who contributed to help during their time of need. Tom and Jeanne survived the storm, but incurred severe damage to their home and neighborhood. Hear their personal account of the storm and what their community looks like today.

You don’t want to miss this amazing event! The event is free of charge and food and drinks will be provided.

We can’t wait to see you there!
