Flooding and Other Survivors Need Your Help

Hello, Everyone,

We know that so many areas have been hit by terrible events of nature - Earthquakes, Avalanches, Extreme Heat Waves, Tornadoes and in Texas severe Flooding. Many of our friends lived in Wimberley, where over 300 homes washed away and many perished. One friend who lives there told us that after the river overran its banks, the American Red Cross was on the ground within hours.  Two local grocery stores were as well, and one had not yet opened their doors, but still had 3,000 packets of food there quickly for the survivors.

We and a number of our friends donated. In that vein, we appreciate the great work done so quickly by the Red Cross and are sharing their note as still more aid is needed. If you can, please help. You may ask that your donation go to help any area where another disaster has struck or where you live or have loved ones, as sadly there are so very many disasters...and people in need. Thank you.

Dear Carolyn, 

We are so grateful for the support from TX and OK communities to help others in need. With this amazing support, last week’s $25,000 challenge was met. 
Volunteers are still on the ground and continue to help residents recover and rebuild from the tornadoes, floods and other crises and will assist the community today and everyday as we stand prepared to help in times of disaster.
  • The Red Cross has had more than 2,700 workers in Texas and Oklahoma providing shelter, meals, relief items, health services and emotional support.
  • 45 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are traveling through the impacted communities, distributing food, water and relief supplies.
  • Volunteers have served more than 73,000 meals and snacks, and handed out more than 62,000 relief supplies such as cleaning items, mops, shovels, tarps and ice chests in Texas alone.
  • Red Cross workers are also providing health services such as replacing lost eyeglasses and medications and providing emotional support to those affected.
  • Trained Red Cross workers are in multi-agency resource centers, meeting one-on-one with people to help them plan their recovery and receive help from other agencies. More than 1,000 cases have already been opened to provide individual recovery support.
If you haven't given yet, there's still time. Several generous donors have committed $225,000 in support of the Red Cross: The San Antonio Area Foundation, Noble Energy, BNSF and Dean Foods. We challenge you to join them today. When you do, we’ll have added another $225,000 to our total!

Giving today means giving back to your community.
