Giving support to Hurricane Ida victims

Although the devastating impact of Hurricane Ida on Sunday will not be felt in Door and Kewaunee counties directly, the local American Red Cross volunteers will affect the relief efforts being made going forward.  Laura McGuire, regional communications manager for the American Red Cross, says the recent stressful times of dealing with wildfires, flooding, and hurricanes require preparing shelters for people in advance of the disasters when possible.  She notes that some of the active volunteers deployed to Louisiana this week were from Wisconsin.



McGuire says the Red Cross provides immediate needs like blankets, water, and shelter for displaced families.  She says the increase in home fires recently has made the demand for volunteers even greater.  Volunteers offer emotional support and begin the process of helping victims pick up the pieces and start recovery.  You can find contact information for volunteering here.
