Red Cross Volunteers Help after Historic West Virginia Floods
July 08, 2016
In June 2016, much of West Virginia was devastated by historic floods that destroyed the homes of thousands of people. Hundreds of American Red Cross volunteers are supporting shelters and providing meals, relief supplies, health services and emotional support. Red Cross caseworkers are also meeting with families to help them plan their next steps. People can help by donating to the West Virginia Floods by visiting redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word WVFLOODS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
