DALLAS/FORT WORTH - The American Red Cross serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area closed the emergency shelter operating at Spring Creek Baptist Church in Weatherford at noon, today, June 10, 2021.
Red Cross teams are providing clean-up kits to those impacted by the flood waters in the Horseshoe Bend area. Casework teams are continuing to work with families to help connect them to additional resources available to help on their road to recovery.
Residents whose home experienced significant flooding are encouraged to call the Red Cross for assistance at 1-800-RED CROSS.
As the pandemic continues, the Red Cross has procedures and resources in place to help ensure everyone’s safety, especially when it comes to supporting local communities. The Red Cross is still providing the same types of support after disasters as we always have. This includes making sure people have a safe place to stay, food to eat and resources to help them recover. The Red Cross will keep in place many of the safety precautions implemented in 2020, including masks, health screenings, enhanced cleaning procedures and encouraging social distancing.
