EUGENE, Ore. — The local Red Cross is accepting donations, to help victims of the tornadoes. It says the best way to get supplies to those in need is with a cash donations.
It uses those donations to pay for food, shelter and emergency equipment to help victims.
American Red Cross Chapter Executive Meghan O’hara says just like any disaster, there are scammers out there so you need to be careful where you donate.
“Going out and checking it out, checking it out online doing a little bit of research to know that the moneys you are giving are going to exactly what it is you want it to go to,” O’hara said.
The Red Cross says it’s unlikely any local volunteers will be deployed to the areas hit.
