Valdosta, GA - The American Red Cross is providing safe shelter for hurricane evacuees.

A long-term shelter opened Wednesday afternoon at the Central Avenue Church of Christ. The Red Cross will provide a place to sleep, and America's Second Harvest Food Bank will supply the food.

The shelter has room for about 50 people. Red Cross workers say it will fill up fast, and anticipate opening another shelter soon. "We had many calls coming in yesterday and today from families who are asking what we can do to help them," said Penelope White, Red Cross Director.

Metabolic Research Center gave the Red Cross a check for $575 to provide food and other necessities at the shelter. Red Cross workers say they need more donations like this from the community to help keep the shelter open.
