Red Cross Spanish Oaks Shelter cost $12-15K

From American Red Cross North Texas Region:

The South Plains Regional Chapter is grateful to serve the South Plains and cannot thank community partners and volunteers enough for the support received. None of us ever expect to be impacted and displaced by a house fire, apartment fire or tornado and weekly reminded within our own community that it does happen. Disasters do not discriminate and do not care where you live, what you drive or what type of income you may bring in.

Last week, the Red Cross was able to open a shelter for victims of the Spanish Oak Apartment fire when 8 units were directly impacted by fire resulting in the whole apartment complex of nearly 100 residents being evaluated and displaced. Beginning with dinner on Monday, May 27, and concluding with breakfast on June 1, the Red Cross was able to provide 400 meals to displaced apartment residents. 

The 30 residents (19 adults and 11 children) in the 8 Units were provided funds through the Red Cross to purchase new items such as  bedding, linens, shoes and clothing. The total Spanish Oak Apartment Shelter Operation is expected to cost $12,000-$15,000. The Red Cross is not government funded and is able to take care of community members through donor support.

Make a financial contribution to help the victims of this fire and others within the South Plains Regional Chapter service area consisting of Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Dickens, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, King, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Motley, Terry and Yoakum.  Please visit www.redcross.org, call the local Chapter at 806.765.8534 or visit and mail donations to 2201 19th Street, Lubbock TX 79401.
