City of Ashburn returns a favor

January 17, 2008

Ashburn-  The city of Ashburn is helping the American Red Cross for helping during a recent disaster.

When Ashburn was hit by a tornado December 15th, the Red Cross set up shelters set up and volunteers poured into the area to help. Thursday, the city gave the organization a $5,000 donation.

"We realize all the help they gave us during that disaster. They gave out 1,800 meals, they gave out debit cards, these people came from Savannah, Tallahassee, all over to help us out at the Civic Center," said Artie Eld, Ashburn City Councilman.

The Red Cross Chapter is thankful for the donation, especially after a recent cut in funding from the county.
