Red Cross money limited for tornado victims

March 24, 2003

Camilla-- Red Cross workers don't have much to give people hit by last week's tornadoes.

The Southwest Georgia Chapter has not received any donations for the victims. The need is great--but their resources are limited. Not only are donations down overall, the Red Cross branch is dealing with a cut in United Way funds. Chairperson Lorie Farkas says, "It's understandable with everything going on in the world but it's frightening because of all the damage in Camilla. The Southwest Georgia chapter is responsible for those areas."

The Southwest Georgia Red Cross is accepting money for the victims. Checks need to be made out to the Southwest Georgia Red Cross and earmarked for the tornado disaster.
