Red Cross working out of Screen Gems studios


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) —

The American Red Cross has set up shop on the Screen Gems lot.

It is using 90-thousand square feet of buildings and parking lots to coordinate relief efforts after the flooding from Hurricane Matthew around Southeastern North Carolina.

More than four-hundred volunteers from across the country, Canada and Puerto Rico have been processed through the center for storm relief, working to help deliver food and supplies to people in need.

“The studio has been gracious enough to let us set this up as a district office. So basically everything that’s happening in the 13 Southeastern counties as terms of response is coordinated through this facility.” Virginia Red Cross Executive Director Bill Brent said.

The Red Cross still has a lot of work to do for flood victims.

You can log on to their website at redcross.org to find out more about what the Red Cross is doing and how you can help.
