Western Mass Red Cross chapter seeks help

Local chapter seeking donations to help Hurricane Matthew relief efforts.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – New developments in the role of Western Massachusetts Red Cross volunteers helping hurricane Matthew victims in the Carolinas and Georgia. Several Springfield-based red cross volunteers are in North Carolina.

Jen Garutti is Executive Director of the Western Massachusetts Red cross chapter. Four Western Massachusetts volunteers may remain for another two weeks.

The Red Cross is asking for help. “We’ve had only a hundred trailers active, full of supplies, cots, comfort kids, water it all costs money,” she explained. “We need every little dime and dollar that you can contribute.”
