Agency Turns to the Community for Help
The past week has taken an emotional toll on hundreds of Dallas residents as flames tore through their apartment homes leaving behind charred remains of their former lives, and not much else.
Three times in four days last week, the Red Cross dispatched large teams of volunteers and many resources to help those standing on the curb at the Indigo, Dilido and Abrams Rd. fires. More than 90 people have received some $32,000 in direct financial assistance and the numbers are still rising.
The Red Cross is appealing to the community for financial donations to cover the cost of these disasters, and for the ones that are sure to happen in the coming days.
