“Our volunteers are dedicated to helping families when they need it most, whether here in their local community or across the county,” said Louise Welch Williams, Regional Chief Executive Officer for the Red Cross in South Carolina. “When they heard that help was needed in Louisiana, they immediately volunteered to assist the people displaced by the flooding.” Over the next several days, the Red Cross will continue to work closely with its community partners and local government to support the needs of the affected communities. This includes supporting shelter operations to provide a safe and dry place to stay; providing meals and needed comfort and relief items; offering emotional and health support; conducting damage assessments and identifying community needs, coordinating with local government and community partners to meet the needs of the affected areas; and communicating with the public, partners, and clients on the importance of preparedness information and how to deal with the disaster from potential flooding, what to do during floods and what to do after a flood.
