Rooms For Red Cross

March 20, 2014, 5:04 PM by Don Jorgensen

Rooms For Red Cross
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Whether it's flood or fires, disasters can happen anytime and anywhere.

The American Red Cross responded to nearly 200 disasters in the Sioux Falls area last year leaving many victims without a place to live.  That's why the Red Cross has partnered with 19 hotels to provide 245 rooms to anyone who gets displaced.

That's about a $25,000 gift from all these lodging partners if you think on average $100 per room, that's a huge savings and a huge benefit to our community," American Red Cross Tony Burke said.

The Red Cross relies on donations and 94 percent of their staff are volunteers. To learn more about the Rooms for the Red Cross or how you can donate, click here.
