Red Cross Hit Hard by Disasters

Organizations like the Red Cross have been hit hard during 2005. A year ago, a tsunami hit across the world. Then Hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit close to home.

Providing so much disaster help has the Red Cross looking for financial help.

Glenna Harkness, of the American Red Cross, said, "It's been a tough year for humanitarian organizations who depend on the donated dollar."

During the hurricanes, there were also several apartment fires in Nacogdoches and Lufkin that dipped into Red Cross funds.
