Red Cross in flood-hit communities

The Canadian Red Cross is on a tour across southwestern Manitoba, giving a helping hand to flood-hit communities.

An outreach team was in Elkhorn on Wednesday and Melita yesterday. Today and Saturday, the team will visit Pipestone, Reston and St. Lazare to meet with families in need of supplies.

The Red Cross is sending hundreds of cleanup kits to the area, which include brooms, mops and cleaning solution. Personal hygiene supplies are being provided to people who have been affected in Brandon, Virden, Sioux Valley, Ashern and Pipestone.

“We’ve seen quite a few donations since last week,” said Red Cross spokesperson Jason Small.

He said as the second crests hit certain communities in the coming days, they will be monitoring further need.

Red Cross is asking people to help the flood recovery efforts by making a financial donation, which can be done online at redcross.ca/mbflood, by calling 1-800-418-1111, or visiting their local Red Cross office. Cheques should be earmarked Manitoba floods.
