Collaboration Key to Hurricane Katrina Response

Saturday, September 03, 2005 — As one of the largest non-profit organizations in the world, the American Red Cross responds to disasters in the United States and around the world every day. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Red Cross is launching one of its largest responses ever to a national disaster, and it’s still not enough to support the needs of all the evacuees who have been forced from their homes.
“The American spirit is alive and well in the heart of people who are helping the Red Cross and all of these organizations,” said Deborah Daley, Red Cross spokesperson.

Across the country people have been supporting the Red Cross and hundreds of other organizations who are providing relief to Katrina victims. While the Red Cross focuses on providing immediate services including food, clothing and shelter, other groups are handling aspects of the operation like medical support or mental health services.
