BEAUMONT, TX (September 25, 2018) – Executive Director of The American Red Cross of Southeast and Deep East Texas has deployed to North Carolina to help residents there in the wake of Hurricane Florence. The Texas Gulf Coast Region has deployed more than twenty volunteers and employees with knowledge and experience in disaster response.
"During Hurricane Harvey so many people gave of themselves during our time of need here in Texas. I feel called to pay it forward by deploying to North Carolina to support the recovery efforts of those affected by Hurricane Florence. We’ve been through the recovery process along the Gulf Coast and we know the monumental effort it takes to get back to square one and I’m up for the challenge to do whatever I can to help,” said Chester Jourdan, Executive Director, American Red Cross Southeast and Deep East.
