Red Cross: Help Hurricane Laura victims by donating money, not supplies

National

TYLER, Texas (KETK) – The Louisiana Red Cross has a message for those hoping to help victims of Hurricane Laura: give cash.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Red Cross cannot accept donations of supplies. This includes:

  • Food
  • Clothes
  • Any related items

Any of these kinds of items donated to Red Cross shelters will be thrown away to try and avoid the spread of the coronavirus.

Donating money will provide shelter, meals, relief supplies, and more for those battered by Laura.
