Disaster trained volunteers from the South Carolina Region of the American Red Cross are deploying to support disaster relief efforts in Georgia where damaging storms ripped through most of the state over the weekend. Red Cross volunteers responded quickly to open shelters, provide emergency essentials, and provide emotional support for families in need.
Seven volunteers from South Carolina are on their way to join dozens of trained American Red Cross disaster workers who are helping in Central-Western parts of the state. Red Cross volunteers are conducting damage assessments, along with providing shelter and comfort to those impacted by the dangerous storms and tornadoes.
The American Red Cross of South Carolina stands ready to send additional disaster workers as requested.
