Who does the Red Cross call?

This past week’s storms knocked the power out for thousands of Austin Energy customers and probably damaged just as many roofs, but while the rest of us are calling our insurance agents and wondering how we’re going to pay that deductible, the Red Cross of Central Texas is, too.

The emergency-aid agency was busy all last week helping Central Texans navigate the storm, only to find out its own building on Manor Road had been damaged, too. Here’s a note from their Web page:

“We always expect to be the ones giving assistance to others,” said Derrick Chubbs, executive director. “But now we find that not only do we need help assisting our community, we need help to repair our own building so we can stay focused on our mission.”  The Central Texas chapter of the American Red Cross serves nine counties.
