Every Gift Makes a Difference!

Last week, over 10 inches of heavy rains brought flooding across New Hampshire. Governor Lynch declared a state of emergency and officials in the affected areas evacuated residents due to flooding and concern about dam's overflowing and overburdening the structures.

During this time, 35 American Red Cross shelters were opened, providing temporary shelter and hot meals for more than 200 people. Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicles served 7047 meals and snacks, and distributed relief items street by street in the affected areas. The Red Cross continues to give out clean-up kits, having distributed 1514 to date, each containing household cleaners, brooms, and mops. In addition, we provide comfort kits and referrals for other services for long-term recovery.

For those displaced and returning to their homes, the Red Cross is distributing resource material on home repair following a flood, and providing teams of American Red Cross mental health volunteers to help residents who may need emotional support.

The American people count on the Red Cross to be there, with food, shelter, clothing, crisis counseling, and other vital services when disaster strikes. We meet that expectation day in and day out in hometowns all across the country thanks to the hard work of our volunteers and employees, the support of our business and community partners, and the generous financial gifts from the public.

You can help aid flood-affected families by supporting the Disaster Relief Fund or the New Hampshire Flood Fund by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross. This will enable the Red Cross to provide food, shelter, counseling and other assistance to those in need. Call 1-800-HELP NOW or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish). Contributions may be sent to the American Red Cross Chapter at 2 Maitland Street, Concord, NH, 03301, or your local chapter, or the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013. Internet users can make a secure online credit card contribution by visiting www.redcross.org.

The American Red Cross has opened numerous shelters and will provide emergency assistance throughout the state of New Hampshire. Although the total cost of the disaster operation is not yet known, Greene says, "It is anticipated to be the most costly disaster relief operation that the New Hampshire chapters have seen in many years."

All American Red Cross disaster relief is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people.
