After multiple tornadoes ravaged communities in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, and Tennessee, the American Red Cross is working around the clock to help those in need and ensure that people have shelter, food, and emotional support. Ninety people were killed and more than 650 people were injured in the December 10-11 tornado outbreak. Emergency shelters are open to provide a safe place for people who cannot return to homes that were significantly damaged.
Known for its ability to rapidly mobilize resources, volunteers, and funding in the face of national and global emergencies, the American Red Cross is working to safeguard the survivors of this disaster and alleviate the suffering and loss that countless individuals have experienced. The commitment from GRoW,, and other donors will enable the Red Cross to do what it does bes: immediately respond to an overwhelming crisis, assess the damage, and provide the assistance that people need in the moment — and in the weeks and months to come.
