Kosciusko Red Cross Nursing Volunteer and Warsaw resident Mary Hoffer is deploying to Colorado as a Staff Services Nurse. This is Mary’s first deployment.
Staff Services volunteers take care of the volunteers who are giving their time to help the Red Cross. A nurse deployed in the area of Staff Services will provide nursing services for Red Cross volunteers assigned to a disaster response. Hoffer left today and will serve for at least 2 weeks.
Thirteen Red Cross shelters were open Wednesday night in Colorado, Utah and Montana. The Red Cross continues to provide shelter, meals and emotional support to evacuated residents.
In Colorado, where six shelters were open, 350 trained Red Cross disaster workers are supporting relief efforts and additional truckloads of supplies and more response vehicles are en route to support relief efforts.
The Red Cross is also working closely with partner organizations to support our sheltering and feeding efforts in the West, including AmeriCorps NCCC, Medical Reserve Corps, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and the Salvation Army.
