Volunteers on Standby for Florida Victim Assistance

Thank you, thank you, for those who need a helping hand.

"Dierbergs is an important Red Cross partner during this recent crisis". The campaign will run from September 10, 2017 to September 16, 2017.

"Financial support from 7 Eleven helps us deliver disaster relief services and provide food, shelter, emotional support and other essential assistance", said Don Herring, American Red Cross chief development officer.

"Nine got into Florida before the storm hit and eight more have now been prepositioned in Georgia as the storm is expected to move northward", said Jim McIntyre, Communications Manager of the Northeast Ohio Region of the American Red Cross.

They are also asking people to give blood and monetary donations to help with their efforts. "Yet every time I turn on the TV, I see [the Red Cross] taking in millions of dollars in donations", he said during a city council meeting Wednesday (Sept. 6).

As hurricanes leave communities in the South ravaged, almost a hundred volunteers from Eastern Iowa are headed down to help hurricane victims.

SunTrust Bank branches also will accept donations at its branches through October 13 for American Red Cross relief efforts.

The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund has already begun responding to Irma's devastation in the Caribbean.

"They said go, I've been in a hurricane before, I didn't want to be in it again, so I left", Stoutmire said.

Donations will allow the Red Cross to meet peoples' needs immediately, according to its website.

First it was Hurricane Harvey, then Irma.

If you weren't directly affected and would like to chip in, the good news is that many companies will let you double your donation.

"Burnett said she hopes the people who receive training will return home and continue to help those in need here in IL".

Finally, another way to help communities affected by the storm is to take in a pet that was transported out of an area affected by Irma.
