Red Cross distributes food and cleaning supplies to help residents with cleanup

RED CROSS NEWS RELEASE

The Red Cross distributed cleaning supplies, water and snacks to residents returning to their homes after the Caughlin Fire this weekend.

As residents return to their homes, it will be emotionally, financially and physically difficult. The American Red Cross provides information about how to pick up the pieces after a disaster. Go to www.redcross.org and click “Getting Assistance.” On the left of the screen, click on the title “Rrecover after a disaster” to learn more.

The Northern Nevada American Red Cross chapter area covers 87,000 square miles with a population of more than 670,000 people. Our chapter territory is from Tonopah north, with our main chapter in Reno and branch offices in Elko, Incline Village and Winnemucca.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information about becoming a volunteer, health and safety classes, or making a donation, call 775-856-1000 or visit our website.
