Right now, the Red Cross is sheltering about 6,000 people. "We're making sure we have food at the shelters, we have mental health capacity, health services to take care of some of the minor medical needs they have", Salemme said.
The Red Cross has trailers full of shelter supplies including cots and blankets, the Red Cross said. More Hawaii volunteers are on standby for deployment. She has reportedly given more than $5 million to the Red Cross over the years. Thousands are also being evacuated in Louisiana as Harvey, now a tropical depression, moves inland for the second time. "We are so grateful for the support of The Wawa Foundation, Wawa and their customers as we work together to provide hope and help to people in need". Tina Quinones was boarding a plane in Chicago Tuesday afternoon, heading for Austin, Texas, to help the American Red Cross.
An American Red Cross call centre in Cape Breton has been overwhelmed by calls from victims of Harvey, but local volunteers are stepping up to help clear the backlog. These funds will be used to help the Red Cross provide immediate and vital support to those communities suffering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Before they can deploy, Boots says volunteers must be trained.

"Excited, but not that it's happening, but that I have the opportunity to help", said Campbell.
The American Red Cross pays for volunteers to travel to disaster sites to aid in relief and recovery. "It will be a challenging environment for two weeks", she said. It's just that good feeling that you get out of helping other people and nothing replaces that.
The Greater Chesapeake Region Red Cross is also sending three emergency response vehicles to hand out meals. Pockrandt said. "The most important contribution at this time is financial".
