Red Cross continues to reach out

EVANSVILLE — Nearly four months after devastating tornadoes and severe weather struck Indiana and Kentucky on Nov. 17, 2013, the American Red Cross continues to provide hope and comfort to people in need — and will be there in these communities in the months ahead.

Trained Red Cross workers are meeting one-on-one with people who need extra help recovering from the November tornadoes. Individuals and families who have damage to their residences or other tornado-caused needs can apply to the American Red Cross for financial assistance. Assistance may include: home repairs, rental assistance for displaced residents, rental security deposits, insurance deductible, inspection fees and property surveys, storm-related storage and moving expenses, and necessary home appliances.

To inquire about assistance, call: Kokomo/North-central Indiana — 765-233-2392; Southwest Indiana — 812-610-8133; West-central Indiana —765-299-8750

“Our focus right now is on the unmet needs of people in the affected areas and making sure they have access to recovery resources,” said Fran O’Shaughnessy, American Red Cross Indiana Disaster Recovery Team Leader, “recovering from a disaster takes time and the Red Cross will be working to deliver aid, alongside our community partners, for months to come.”

These ongoing recovery efforts build on the food, shelter, relief supplies and other support the Red Cross provided after the tornadoes struck in November. Red Cross efforts included:

• Serving close to 30,000 meals and snacks

• Handing out nearly 2,500 relief items

• Providing 190 health and mental health services

• Opening six shelters providing 145 overnight stays
