Facebook founder Zuckerberg launches Harvey Recovery Fund

More than a dozen volunteers for the American Red Cross Ohio Buckeye Region are preparing to deploy to Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

David Ace Griffon chose to volunteer and says he's prepared to be sent to Houston at any time now, "I'm actually here to give my assistance for the disaster relief from Harvey - I would like to just help out all I can". This assistance will continue over the next weeks and months, helping residents recover from this massive storm.

Along with partners, the American Red Cross has served almost 30,000 meals and snacks since the storm began.

Training will include orientation and on boarding for new Red Cross volunteers, as well a comprehensive overview of Red Cross relief operations during large-scale disasters.

"This is an incredible gift", American Red Cross Vice President of Communications Elizabeth Penniman said of the donation, People reported. The storm is expected to produce life threatening rain throughout the middle of next week and more than 40 additional shelters are on standby, if needed.

The "The Proposal" and "Minions" star, who owns a home in Austin, Texas, told the magazine that her decision was made in an attempt to bring people together. Canadians can also donate through the Canadian Red Cross here.

He said the vehicles "are like ambulances stocked with food and other supplies". A Red Cross official in Wausau says if you want to help, money rather than goods is the best way to help. With their support, the Red Cross can be there when disaster strikes to respond with shelter, food and the necessary supplies to ensure people are cared for, and to help during the recovery process. Everyone knows the Red Cross helps people during emergencies, but an important part of their mission is to help you help yourself. Funds will be provided to the American Red Cross to help with relief efforts, including supporting volunteer efforts, opening shelters and providing meals and other supplies.

Sandra Bullock is the latest celebrity to lend aid to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
