Albany-- The American Red Cross is still working with the city of Albany to find a new site for an evacuee disaster center.

The Red Cross will shut down the center at Beattie Road Church of Christ. Evacuees are no longer staying there, but can still get meals and other services. The Red Cross is now concentrating on their long-term needs and will announce a collaborative effort with the city early next week to help victims to return to a more normal lifestyle.

" We are going to join forces with the city, there will be an announcement made by the city early next week, that the Red Cross will then assist the city in manning relocation services"said Cindy Smith with the American Red Cross.

The Red Cross says, as the families' needs become more long-term oriented, so do the things that can be donated. Items include furniture, dishes, un-used clothing, such as underwear and socks. As children find new schools, they will also need school supplies, too.
