Red Cross Still Assisting Many After Flooding

News

It’s been two weeks since the Rio Grande Valley experienced its second year in a row of devasting floods, and people still need help.

David Barbee, is one of the hundreds of people in the Rio Grande Valley affected by the heavy rainfall that poured on South Texas on June 24, and like dozens of others, he came to the American Red Cross.

With the help of partners, the Red Cross has served over 31,000 meals and snacks since the storm began,  

And distributed more than 7,000 relief supplies including comfort kits with hygiene items like toothbrushes and soap and clean-up kits.

The Red Cross also opened several service centers at different locations across the valley, offering clean up kits, snacks and one-on-one casework services for additional support.

And they hope to continue helping the community with the help of volunteers.

If you would like to volunteer with the Red Cross you can stop by Weslaco High School this week between 8:30 AM and noon.
