|American Red Cross needs Help|

The American Red Cross is having a tough time in Caldwell County.Several fires over the past few weeks have taken their toll on the Red Cross’ resources, director David Garrison says. Earlier this week, the Red Cross assisted a family in Hudson that lost their home in a woodstove fire.
In such cases, the American Red Cross assists with food, clothing and hotel vouchers.
It can add up. The past six months have cost the Red Cross more than they’ve spent in any complete year so far.
