How to Help Mississippi Tornado Victims

Since Saturday’s Mississippi tornado, which killed ten and injured 49 when it barelled through Yazoo City, disaster relief efforts have begun and reports from The Red Cross cite that the victims are in dire need of two things: cash donations and volunteers on standby.

“The victims don’t need stuff, not yet,” said Paige Roberts of the Southeast Mississippi Chapter of the American Red Cross. “The organizations that are here to provide them shelter, food and emotional support need money to meet those needs.”

The tornado has left over 700 homes destroyed in its wake.

How to donate: The American Red Cross is providing shelter, food, and comfort to people affected. Go here to make a donation to their Disaster Relief Fund to give your support. The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency has began accepting donations. Go here to donate or call 888-353-1793 if you’re interested in volunteering.
