“This specific donation is in the form of gift certificates, so that they can replace their household essentials that they have lost in the hurricane. So we feel very, very happy to be taking this out to those people; as we can see, when we go about our work, we can see that sigh of relief that they are getting that assistance, and that people do care.”

 

According to Bowman, the Red Cross has assisted about fifty percent of the more than one thousand families they have assessed across the areas affected by Hurricane Earl.
