August 25, 2017

Hurricane Harvey is about to wreak havoc on the gulf coast. So now, volunteers from across the United States, including from the Capitol Region, are traveling to Texas to lend a hand. Kevin Coffey, the Regional Chief Development Officer for the Northeastern New York Chapter of the Red Cross, says as of Friday afternoon they sent nine regional volunteers to Texas. Three of them are from the Capitol Region. Coffey says that number will grow, and he expects to send about 30 or 40 more in the coming days or weeks.
