Local Red Cross Chapter Deploys ERV to New Jersey

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Additional resources from the Coastal Bend chapter of the American Red Cross are being deployed to the Tri-State area to help clean up following Hurricane Sandy.

"People need help, and we're going to go help," Red Cross volunteer Larry Paton said.

Early Thursday morning, an emergency response vehicle, or ERV, was loaded up with supplies and a pair of volunteers to set off on an 1,800-mile journey to North Brunswick, NJ. From there, the local crew will be given more specific instructions.

"We'll be distributing items that people need. Clean up kits, blankets, water, and of course food," Paton said.

The American Red Cross is looking for donations to help fund the hurricane relief efforts. If you would like to make a $10 donation, you can text the word "Red Cross" to 90999.
