Government officials estimate as many as 18,000 homes are affected by the Colorado flooding. Access to some communities remains difficult due to flood waters and damaged roads. As these areas begin to re-open, the Red Cross plans to be there to assess the damage, distribute relief supplies and support a recovery effort that will take months.
Local Red Cross officials are getting the word out that YOU can help by donating:
On Thursday, November 8, 2012, Alan Chartock and the staff of WAMC will take to the airwaves to raise money for the victims of Superstorm Sandy. The special one day Fund Drive will commence at 8:00 AM and all the proceeds will go to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
