Hurricane Sandy has left a path of devastation along the East Coast and surrounding states.  Here in South Texas, we know how important the work of the American Red Cross is in times of natural disasters, and right now, the Red Cross needs your help!  How can you be a Red Cross "hero?"  Two of the best ways are by volunteering or donating to the Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts. To make a secure online donation, CLICK HERE.  You can also donate via text message; text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to Disaster Relief efforts.  Your donation via text will be added to your next wireless phone bill.

We're all familiar with the Red Cross' Disaster Relief efforts in the aftermath of hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes and other large-scale disasters...but did you know that most of their disaster relief work is done locally, right here in the Crossroads? The Victoria chapter chapter responds to a home fire every 18 hours, with the help of their Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you would like to help by volunteering, the Crossroads Chapter will welcome and train you! Here's where to find them:
