*Please no clothing, furniture or household items


The Red Cross also suggests donating blood. A Mobile Blood Unit will be parked in the parking lot, collecting donations.


If you can't make it, you can make a ten dollar donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999. The donation will show up on your wireless bill, or be deducted from your balance if you have a prepaid phone.
