Four additional Kansas Capital Area Chapter volunteers will leave for Oklahoma tomorrow afternoon to help families affected by the devastating Moore tornado.
Shelley Bulkley, Lucy Voisine, Ned Webb, and Phyllis Marotta will leave around 1:00 p.m. Thursday from the Topeka Red Cross office to assist in client casework, which involves gathering information from clients to determine how to best help the families move forward after experiencing this disaster. The teams will be in the affected areas and help families take the first steps toward recovery.
Meghan Spreer, Red Cross Communications Director, said in the coming days, volunteers will meet with many affected families to help with emergency needs and connect people with other resources and tools to support their recovery.
"This relief effort is very large involving several communities where tornadoes struck," Spreer said. "You can help people affected by disasters like the Oklahoma and Texas tornadoes by making a donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund."
The Kansas volunteers will be part of a larger team of volunteers who will help provide food, water, emotional support, and bulk supplies to families.
