Springfield – More than two weeks after devastating tornadoes hit Oklahoma, volunteers are still signing up to help.
The Red Cross has been providing shelter, food, relief supplies, and even emotional support for those affected by the tornados. One volunteer left this morning to join in relief efforts.
Marvin Norman, Springfield Illinois Capital Area Chapter volunteer will be working with families one on one to make sure they get the help they need.
The Red Cross says they anticipate this will be a lengthy response. So far they have deployed more than 1,100 Red Cross disaster workers to help those in Oklahoma. For more information about the Red Cross response in Oklahoma, please contact Colleen.Stone@redcross.org or call (217)787-7602 x 229.
