The American Red Cross hosted a boot camp in Utica Thursday to train volunteers on how to give the best aid to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

"The last time Louisiana had the same situation, the Knights of Columbus, we connected with those guys and sent over a whole trailer", Ybarra said. "We can get them trained up".

"Finished 30 years of practice here in Spokane with Group Health and that was just before Katrina, so I had retired, was available", said Kearney. Proceeds will go to the American Red Cross disaster relief effort. Because, you know, it's not like people are dying; or being displaced; or just generally suffering. Volunteering with the Red Cross was a step inspired by her grandmother and the trip is something Charla couldn't do without a little help. "Our donors should be proud of how their donations are being used to help save lives and support people during some of their darkest days imaginable".

They also estimate 33,800 people sought refuge in more than 240 Red Cross and partner shelters across Texas Wednesday night. But she says there's a lot of work to be done.

Donations from the Peabody fund will be sent to the Greater Houston Community Foundation's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.

Amazon and Whole Foods are matching up to US$1mil (RM4.27mil) in donations made through the e-commerce site to the American Red Cross.
