November 02, 2012
CORTLAND (11/2/12) – What is now being called “the largest Red Cross response in the last five years,” the wake of Hurricane Sandy has crumbled and rearranged much of the East Coast, leaving its residents in darkness. This disaster is “expected to exceed the financial devastation of Katrina, reaching the billion-dollar mark,” said Karen Conklin, Executive Director and CEO of the Mahoning Valley American Red Cross.
Cortland Banks has teamed up with the Mahoning Valley Red Cross to serve as a donation center for monetary funds that will be put towards the disaster relief effort. Those who would like to donate may deposit cash or checks into the American Red Cross of the Mahoning Valley’s Disaster Relief account, at any of Cortland Banks’ thirteen locations starting Friday, November 2, 2012. A full list of locations in Mahoning, Trumbull, Portage, Geauga and Ashtabula counties can be found online at www.cortland-banks.com. (Click here for locations.)
The American Red Cross of the Mahoning Valley’s emergency response vehicle has been deployed, along with Valley volunteers to help in the relief efforts. The target goal for the local American Red Cross chapter is $100,000.
In addition to monetary donations, the gift of blood can also be given, as blood drives up and down the East Coast have been canceled in the aftermath of the storm, to find out when and where the next, local blood donation will take place please call 1-800-RedCross for more information.
