Red Cross volunteers have begun assessing damage to homes to provide disaster client casework to residents who suffered major damage to their dwellings.

Red Cross also received a semi-truck shipment today of bulk items and Clean Up Kits to begin disbursement in the affected counties.

The Crawfordville Elementary School will remain open throughout the evening giving local residents a dry place to stay. Mass care feeding will also continue at the shelter along with emotional care if needed.

People can help those affected by Tropical Storm Debby by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

The Capital Area Chapter is accepting donations on their website: www.tallyredcross.org. Contributions may also be sent to your local Red Cross chapter, 1115 Easterwood Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32311.

Contributions enable the Red Cross to prepare for and provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance in response to disasters.
