Attorneys, insurance companies, contractors, adjusters, and government programs can do a lot for the victims of weather disasters, but the process of settling an insurance claim or applying for benefits can take months—at a time when people need help today. In the aftermath of severe storms and other disasters, The American Red Cross has reliably been there to provide relief for people who are injured, displaced from their homes, or having trouble picking up the pieces after a tragedy.
Through our own work with families, businesses, and organizations affected by weather disasters, we have seen firsthand the importance of the work the Red Cross does, both across the nation and right here in our hometown. This is why we urge you to donate to storm and flood relief today—and why The Voss Law Firm has promised to match 100% of the donations you give up to $1,000.
You May Have Already Seen the Red Cross in Action Close to Home
The Red Cross responds to disasters—large and small—across the United States, and its employees and volunteers have been busy responding to numerous severe weather events across the Southern states over the last year. Recently, the Red Cross has responded to the April tornadoes, severe weather, and flooding in Texas, an event that affected at least three million residents and left 100,000 homes without power. The Red Cross was also present to support and offer relief for the victims of the December 26 tornados in North Texas, as well as the victims of the many other severe storms that have pummeled the South this year.
After each of these severe weather tragedies, the Red Cross provided wide-ranging response, rescue, and relief services, including:
- Setting up safe shelters
- Distributing water and essential supplies
- Serving meals and snacks
- Helping families clean up debris and salvage their belongings
- Helping victims deal with the emotional toll of the disaster
- Connecting loved ones with displaced victims
- Continually monitoring evolving relief needs
- Committing to providing help until it is no longer needed
