Lubbock Apartment Association donates thousands to Harvey relief

Posted: Updated:

The Lubbock Apartment Association donates thousands to hurricane relief on the gulf after Hurricane Harvey.

$10,000 will go toward emergency relief in Corpus Christi.

It's part of the Red Cross's disaster drives that started in August, specifically for Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

The Red Cross reports it's provided more food in those areas since then than in the past four years combined.

It's transitioning from its initial disaster phase into daily aid for victims who've lost their homes or other support structures.

How You Can Give Back

1.    Gifts that help disaster victims. For example, a donation of $25 can provide blankets—as well as warmth and a sense of security—for five people staying in an emergency shelter. A $30 gift can provide hot meals for three people following a disaster while a $50 donation can supply a full day of emergency shelter with urgently needed essentials, including three meals, two blankets, a cot, snacks and personal hygiene supplies for someone impacted by disaster. 

2.    Gifts that help our troops. For example, a $145 contribution can show our heroes and veterans that we care by providing military hospital kits to 20 service members.

3.    Gifts that help internationally. For example, a financial contribution of $100 can educate families and vaccinate 100 children against measles—a $500 gift can vaccinate an entire village.

To give with meaning, visit redcross.org/gift. Choose from the diverse assortment of symbolic gifts, and make a tax-deductible donation online or, call 1-800 RED CROSS to support the corresponding Red Cross services. Then, send a card to the friend, family member, co-worker or customer being honored by your donation.
