Just how busy are we? Well, here’s a note from our friend Rodney in Emergency Services:
“Our December disaster assistance has increased by 56%; running one call for every 19 hours, compared to our normal one call for every 36 hours. In addition to helping people in the metro area, we have assisted displaced clients along the coast, the eastern foothills, and three fires in the Northeastern Oregon District.”
We’ve always known that the winter months see the highest number of calls for Red Cross assistance. If you’ve ever thought about getting involved with us as a volunteer or even a donor, now’s the time to do it.
