In Case You Missed It

Long Island Red Cross members and local officials gathered on Long Beach to discuss hurricane-preparedness.

Over the last seven days, the Greater New York Red Cross has provided emergency assistance to 128 adults and 47 children following 50 local disaster responses. Here are some highlights from last week and a preview of upcoming activities. (See below)
