The relief organization plans to hold a preparedness conference with faith-based and community organizations.
Officials understand that many churches and other groups often want to help in times of disaster. They hope by organizing a conference they can focus their energies in the best way possible.
The conference kicks off the day before hurricane season, May 31.
Any churches or community groups that would like to attend are asked to call the Capital Area Red Cross.
