Lubbock's Red Cross Returns From Gulf Coast - KAMC 10/01/2008
Members of Lubbock's Red Cross chapter are back at home after spending two weeks helping hurricane victims in the Gulf Coast. Karl Craig spent two weeks feeding Hurricane Ike victims in Bridge City, Texas. Craig and another volunteer from Lubbock worked with Red Cross chapters across the United States to help more than 80,000 people this past month.
"If we can do a little bit to enable them to recover or give them hope to recover we've made a big difference," says Craig.
The relief effort is still ongoing in the Gulf Coast. If you'd like to help the Red Cross you can make monetary donations to the National Disaster Relief Fund or to the Hurricane 2008 Relief Fund.
