Red Cross Changes Gears

by Jessica Cervantez

As the number of evacuees staying in area shelters continues to go down, the Red Cross has decided to shift gears.

The Lufkin Red Cross location will now be the hub to send aid to the Beaumont and Port Arthur area. 18-wheelers will now stop there with materials and equipment to be delivered to other disaster areas.

The hub is located across from the Pentecostal campground. They will stay there as long as they are needed.
