Tennessee Red Cross Regional Disaster Office Mary Beth Birge talked with WVLT-TV in Knoxville about the growing number of Red Crossers from our state who are heading to Louisiana to assist people affected by the devastating floods. More Tennessee Red Crossers are heading to Louisiana this week, including Mary Beth, who's deploying tomorrow.
The flooding in Louisiana is likely the worst natural disaster since 2012’s Superstorm Sandy, and Red Crossers from across the country are there, helping to shelter and feed those affected. Help people affected by the Louisiana floods by visiting redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or texting the word LAFLOODS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to, and help people recover from these disasters.
