Red Cross Continues To Serve Storm Victims

June 27, 2014, 5:10 PM by Sammi Bjelland

Red Cross Continues To Serve Storm Victims
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Red Cross has been on the scene of recent storms across the state.

From flooding in Canton and out in the Black Hills, to the tornado victims in Wessington Springs, the Red Cross has been busy this past week.

While they appreciate in-kind donations, what they really need is money to keep things going. And while they are cutting back some of their assistance that is no longer needed in areas, they do plan to keep serving the communities that need them.

"We're moving from a response effort to the longterm recovery effort right now. That's going to be the long road moving forward. So a lot of what we're doing is working with the partnering agencies and establishing what we call our MARC. Multi Agency Resource Center. Where all the different agencies come in so that the clients or individuals in those communities can come in to one location. Instead of popping around all over the place, to sort a one stop shop," said Sioux Empire Red Cross Executive Director, Tony Burke.

To donate to the Red Cross, you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS, stop by a local Red Cross office, or go online.
