Red Cross Opens Resource Centers


LA FERIA, TX – – The American Red Cross is opening Multi-Agency Resource Centers to help residents affected by recent June floods.

Starting today a ‘one-stop shop’ made up of local organizations is set to offer services to those directly impacted by heavy rains.

They’re offering resources such as food, water, cleaning supplies, among many other services free of charge for residents.  

“We require proof of pre-disaster address,” says Disaster Specialist Axl David with the American Red Cross. “Different agencies have different requirements, but generally speaking any kind of proof that you lived in a house affected prior to the disaster taking place is generally what we need.”

The Centers are servicing Cameron Willacy and Hidalgo counties.

  • July 11 – Life Tabernacle, 228 East Third Street, Sebastian, TX
