Red Cross gets new volunteers ready for Irma

Red Cross gets new volunteers ready for Irma

It moved up the Florida peninsula on Monday, eventually becoming a tropical storm and bringing high winds and flooding rains into Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama.

When there's a devastating natural disaster like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, it's a reminder that despite the political and cultural differences that divide this country, we can still come together when it counts to help those in need.

In addition to the 15 Red Cross volunteers deployed for Irma relief, 16 Red Cross volunteers from the area are still in Texas for Harvey relief efforts and 28 volunteers have returned home. "And once again, when needed the most, they are stepping up to help in a major way", said Kathleen McLaughlin, president of the Walmart Foundation and chief sustainability officer for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. But, Nigel says, the Office of Emergency Management can't let everyone out on the streets right now, "What we've been really advising folks is to listen to the reports coming out of the state and local officials".

"Serving people, whether they are our customers or our neighbors in the communities where we live, work and serve, is part of Delta's DNA", said Tad Hutcheson, Managing Director - Community Engagement.

"Volunteers are the heartbeat of this organization", Baumgartner said of the Red Cross.

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

"Ninety-one cents out of every dollar goes straight to humanitarian aid", White said. Instead, the best way to support disaster victims is with a financial donation. "Whatever they need, we want to be able to be supportive and helpful".
