Eastern Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross to help more families

The next time a tornado or any other type of disaster strikes the Eastern Texas Panhandle, the Red Cross will have more equipment to help you recover.

The Eastern Texas Panhandle Chapter received a grant of $10,970 from Wal-Mart.

They'll use the money to buy cots, blankets, clean up kits, and training materials.

Once purchased, this will give the Red Cross the ability to respond to an event affecting up to 150 families.
