American Red Cross continues to feed counties cut off by the storm

By Staff reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The American Red Cross and Southern Baptist Convention have two fixed kitchen sites in the state and mobile feeding will be conducted from each site to areas in the state that are still without power and in low food supply following superstorm Sandy.

The kitchens are open for hot meals and will be available as long as communities are still without power. Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs) will be traveling through communities in Barbour, Boone, Braxton, Logan, Nicholas, Randolph, Tucker, Upshur and Webster counties. The ERVs will have food and water for individuals and families and will assess the needs of the communities recovering from the storm. 

The kitchens are located at Restore Fellowship Baptist Church, Old Route 19, Mount Nebo and Wayside Baptist Church, Brushy Fork Road, Rural Route 3, Buckhannon.

Volunteers are working to address the needs of each county and make sure that individuals and families are safe. To find a Red Cross shelter, people can download the Red Cross Hurricane app, visit the Red Cross website, www.redcross.org, or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
