The Yakima chapter of the American Red Cross is collecting donations to help people in Texas after hurricane Harvey. Cody Tussler is the Disaster Program Manager who says you can send a check or drop off cash to the Yakima office at 302 South 2nd Street. As for volunteers being sent to the disaster area Tussler tells KIT News."We have wildfires burning in the area we're on hold for sending anyone out of the region."
That means no volunteers from Red Cross chapters are being sent from Washington, Oregon or California. He says a lot of people are donating and he expects more donations this week. You can send a check or drop off cash at the Yakima office at 302 South 2nd Street or donate online at redcross.org.
