American Red Cross of Southern Nevada deployed to help out with disasters nationwide

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The local volunteers for the American Red Cross are working to provide disaster relief across the country. In just the last month, a series of deadly hurricanes and wildfires have uprooted lives even as people have struggled with the ongoing impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Red Cross says its volunteers are on the ground working tirelessly to provide food, shelter, comfort, and support to people in need. The American Red Cross of Southern Nevada is coordinating closely with partners and local officials in the affected areas. Even as they respond to Hurricane Laura and the deadly western wildfires, the Red Cross is mobilizing supplies and volunteers in anticipation of Tropical Storm Sally, which is projected to make landfall tomorrow along the Gulf Coast.
