SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - If you want to help the Red Cross emergency response to flooding in Colorado, make a financial donation.
Red Cross Community Chapter Executive Director Tony Burke says you can donate online at red cross-dot-org or text ten dollars to 9-0-9-9-9 or visit a Chapter office.
Burke encourages people to volunteer and the Red Cross has a training app that’s free to download. He says they're not going to send you to Colorado today but now is the time to step up. He says if you really want to help, beyond a financial donation, come to the local chapter and give your time and talents to build response communities for the future.
Burke says the team Red Cross app allows users to start training in the palm of their hands.
Burke says volunteers will continue working through the local chapters in times of deployment. The Sioux Empire Chapter of the American Red Cross is at 808 North West Avenue in Sioux Falls.
