Foundation on Tuesday, Aug. 29, announced that they would allocate $1 million to support immediate relief and long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts for parts of Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The governor was given a special Red Cross challenge coin.

The goal was to prepare volunteers to send them to areas impacted by Harvey.

Gretchen Hjelmstad, a local Red Cross spokeswoman, said the Fargo office has seen an influx of volunteers this week, with 70 people showing up for two training sessions. Nall most likely will be traveling Saturday to Texas.

Apple is letting users donate to the American Red Cross directly on iTunes and App Store. Mayo requested that the funds are used for relief efforts of those affected by the recent storm, which has killed dozens and displaced millions.

The Connecticut governor thanked Red Cross volunteers on Friday for their quick response to Hurricane Harvey.

American Red Cross has 178 shelters open in Texas and Jaggers said the shelter population is right at about 32,000, with numbers rising. At this time, the organization is focused on deploying registered and trained volunteers.

"The real training will be on the job when they are there, because then there will be real life experiences, but it's giving them the basic tools to be able to go out and help", said North Country Chapter Executive Director, Jane Gendron.

Jaggers said there is a high need for volunteers. Our team started planning as long as a week ago Monday, so we've been roughly two weeks.

From western Massachusetts, Red Cross disaster program manager Mary Nathan said six volunteers will be in place by Wednesday.

Persons interested in volunteering must go to to begin the volunteer process. What's the best way for people to get involved?

The CEO of Connecticut's Red Cross chapter expects emergency response vehicles sent from this state to Texas to assist with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts will remain there until next year. The western MA chapter of the Red Cross will be holding a boot camp training session in Springfield on Saturday for all interested volunteers. "Not everyone can go to Texas, but there's plenty of work to be done here in MA".
