The American Red Cross and Community Partners Continue Response to Sept. 21 Flood
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Sept. 27, 2018) – The American Red Cross and its community partners will open a Multi Agency Resource Center (MARC) at the Everman City Hall Annex in Everman, Texas on Thursday, Sept. 27 as part of the recovery to recent flooding. The MARC will offer impacted residents additional aid and resources, including financial assistance, from multiple relief agencies. The MARC will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Everman City Hall Annex, located at 213 N. Race St., Everman, TX.
The launch of the MARC brings relief resources and offers residents convenient access to agencies in one central location. The Red Cross, Tarrant County Office of Emergency Management, Everman Office of Emergency Management, Forest Hills Office of Emergency Management and the Catholic Charities are just a few of the organizations that will be available via the MARC.
With nearly 5 inches of rainfall and subsequent flooding in North Texas last Friday, nearly 60 homes across Dallas, Ellis and Tarrant counties were damaged. Everman bore the brunt of the impact with nearly 150 families displaced. The Red Cross has been on-site in Everman since Saturday providing shelter, meals, snacks, bottled water and clean-up kits equipped with mops, brooms, trash bags and plastic totes.
