Volunteers Support Around-the-Clock Relief Effort at Two Shelters
LAKE ARROWHEAD, Calif. — February 28, 2023 — The American Red Cross of San Bernardino County has mobilized its disaster workers to help those affected by the winter storms. The Red Cross is supporting a shelter at Rim of the World High School (27400 CA-18, Lake Arrowhead). At the shelter, Red Cross volunteers are providing safe place to stay, along with food, hydration, and more.
Down the Mountain
In response to mountain-area road closures caused by winter weather, the American Red Cross of San Bernardino County continues to operate the shelter at Redlands East Valley High School (31000 E Colton Ave) which remains open around-the-clock. Volunteers are available to assist residents unable to return home with emergency lodging, meals, snacks, hydration and more.
A San Bernardino County information line is also available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, at 909-387-3911.
At both shelters, trained Red Cross volunteers and staff remain on call around-the-clock and are ready to assist in various aspects including sheltering, feeding, and more.
