The Red Cross is always in need of volunteers, but training is required. The best way to volunteer to help with this, or subsequent disasters, is to sign up now at redcross.org/volunteer.
During disasters such as these, many members of the community offer to donate goods to help those who have been displaced. We appreciate the good intentions, but financial donations are the quickest and best way to get help to the people who need it most. It takes time and money to sort, store and distribute donated items.
Monetary donations allow us to be flexible in the help we deliver and ensure that we can provide what people need most.
Dayton Area Chapter 370 W. First St. Dayton, Ohio Marita Salkowski 513-477-1694 firstname.lastname@example.org
