How To Help Flood Victims in Texas

August 29, 2017

Greetings!

We have been asked how folks in Park Rapids can help victims of the natural disaster happening in Texas and the devastation occurring from Hurricane Harvey in the Southern States.

We reached out to the American Red Cross Serving Northern Minnesota in Bemidji looking for a local connection. Executive Director, Dan Williams, says there are two main ways to help. 1) Donate Money & 2) Volunteer. Please see his message below;

Volunteering - Great story, two drivers are from Roseau and Virginia: http://www.kbjr6.com/story/36228398/duluth-red-cross-volunteers-head-to-houston
 
How can people help?
 
Financially:

  • Go to www.redcross.org and donate

  • Text Harvey to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross relief effort

 
If people want to help the Red Cross in a non-financial way, support with our Holiday Mail for Heroes project is VERY welcomed.
