Red Cross Relief Efforts

As everyone knows The American Red Cross has a huge relief response underway to Sandy, providing people across a number of states with a safe place to stay, food to eat and comfort during this difficult time.  Thousands of people have spent the night in hundreds of Red Cross shelters since the storm began its onslaught on the country. The Red Cross has already served more than 100,800 meals and snacks and mobilized more than 2,300 disaster workers and almost 200 emergency vehicles so far and more are being deployed.  In our own Central New York Region we have deployed 47 people to NYC and 5 people to New Jersey. Those people consist of Red Cross Staff, AmeriCorps and Red Cross Volunteers. 

In our own community we have had an outpouring of people that have stopped into the office to donate money or called to ask how they can help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  As the Branch Manager I want to say Thank You!!! Your kindness and generosity has been very humbling to myself and the rest of the staff here at the American Red Cross. It’s nice to see so many caring members in our own community wanting to help in any way they can.  The relief efforts to assist everyone in NYC and New Jersey will go on for a very long time and we will continue to seek the help from the public.  It’s not too late to make a financial donation by visiting www.redcross.org  or you can mail your contributions to our office which is located at 333 West First Street, Oswego. Blood Donations are very critical at this time so please call us at 343-0967 to see when our next blood drive is scheduled.  Thank you all again for your continuous support to the American Red Cross and to the relief efforts of Hurricane Sandy.
