Editor's Note: The following information was provided by the American Red Cross.
American Red Cross volunteers from Eastern Massachusetts, after working in our communities during Hurricane Sandy, are accepting deployments to states and regions devastated by the superstorm.
Suzanne Crooker of Wilmington, who specializes in client casework, has been deployed to New Jersey.
The client caseworker works with those impacted by the hurricane to evaluate their needs and provide services they need to immediately begin their recovery.
The American Red Cross has mobilized more than 5,700 disaster workers from all over the country who have served more than 3.3 million meals and snacks so far. We have also activated more than 300 response vehicles and handed out more than 124,500 relief items.
Suzanne Crooker, in accepting this deployment, is gaining experience working with Red Cross experts throughout the U.S. When she returns to Massachusetts, her knowledge will help better inform our efforts, and help make our local region stronger.
Many in your community want to know how to help. They could train to become disaster volunteers, or fund this long-term relief effort by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or visiting RedCross.Org.
