Two from county assist in Florence relief

And there is a need for more help, which is why a team of 15 gathered on the West Side on Monday for a Red Cross deployment.

Richard Smith, The Executive Director of the American Red Cross for Central and Western South Dakota, says their volunteers are prepared to help in any way possible.

As Hurricane Florence makes landfall on the east coast, area volunteers are ready to step in from Muskingum County and beyond.

To make a donation, Kroger says customers can add any amount they want to their total purchase at checkout.

The tech giant adds that their reason for doing this is to help the "millions of people" who are projected to be affected by the "devastating rain, flooding, and wind" that Florence will bring to the Carolinas and Virginia.

There are about a dozen other volunteers from eastern NY who are assisting the Red Cross during the storm.

As WCBS 880's Peter Haskell reported, the DART Team - short for Disaster Assistance Response Team - is composed of current and retired FDNY members.

The volunteers have been driving emergency response vehicles, operating shelters and distributing food and supplies, among other things, Williams said.

The Southcentral Kentucky chapter of the Red Cross opened a shelter for Florence evacuees on Saturday, for a family of 20 plus.

Anyone from any area can donate to Feeing to America. The best way to help those affected by Florence is by donating to the following organizations.

Donating money is always a great way to help anyone in need. "So our numbers should increase for people who didn't possibly evacuate, so we're increasing those numbers by about 30 percent".

"Right now our main focus is safety and giving people a safe place to stay and something to eat", he said.

The Kroger Company, or simply Kroger, is an American retailing company founded by Bernard Kroger in 1883 in Cincinnati, Ohio. "As the only statewide diaper bank in North Carolina, DBNC partners with state emergency services to fill this gap".
