Red Cross snowstorm relief effforts spelled out in report

Volunteers have begun to bring food, water and other items directly to the homes of people in some of the areas hardest hit by last week’s massive lake-effect snowstorm, officials of the American Red Cross Western and Central New York Region reported Monday.

Officials said the Red Cross is continuing to operate a shelter for those affected by the storm in Iroquois Middle School, 2111 Girdle Road, Elma. Additional shelter locations are on standby in case they are needed for people displaced by flooding, power outages or collapsed roofs.

Since the storm began, the Red Cross has operated or supported 19 shelters, served more than 2,850 meals and snacks, and distributed more than 250 comfort kits.
