New York Red Cross Supports Louisiana Relief Efforts

In response to the historic flooding in Louisiana, Red Cross Chapters across the country, including Greater New York, are pitching in to assist this massive relief effort, the largest since Superstorm Sandy. Currently, more than 40 local volunteers and staff members have deployed to the flood-ravaged areas. Additionally, a 24 hour call center has been set up at Greater New York HQ to relay vital information from flood survivors to volunteers and agencies on the ground in Louisiana.
Here are some photos and other short stories about our continued efforts to support the people affected by this disaster. This page will be updated regularly.
