Houston Chronicle parent donates to Red Cross

A Guide to Helping the Victims of Hurricane Harvey

Houston is now in the middle of catastrophic and life-threatening flooding.

Animals may have got separated from their owners or may have simply been left behind as people rushed to evacuate the area.

Financial donations are the most helpful and can be applied where most needed.

People were urging donors Monday to seek out churches and local organizations, saying, "Please don't donate money to the Red Cross!".

The Red Cross doesn't plan to send any more volunteers to Houston because there's concern about a tropical storm hitting the SC coast.

About the American Red Cross: The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides global humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. They are run by recruited volunteers from around the country.

Make a donation today by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 gift.

The Red Cross chapter that covers the Kansas, Nebraska and southwest Iowa region has at least 43 people helping in Texas. "But they still send people down because there are things we can do even if they haven't been trained in a lot of things", she says.

Anderson is stationed in Lake Charles, Louisiana, which is just two hours from Houston. "Once we're able to get people back to their homes, or what used to be their homes, then we'll get into some additional assistance the Red Cross will provide", Salemme said. In Lake Charles they are experiencing some heavy rain, and she said there is a feeling of nervousness as they wait to see what the storm does there.

Along with the man power, Red Cross is also transporting meals, blankets and toiletries to Harvey's victims.
