Two local Wichita Falls Red Cross employees are headed to Canton to lend a hand with disaster relief.

Katrina Farmer and Duke Osborne left early in the morning on May 2nd to help the Red Cross in Canton manage volunteers and help those who were displaced by the tornado outbreak Saturday.

The National Weather Service confirmed three tornados ripped through the area, prompting the Canton mayor to sign an emergency declaration for the area, describing the damage as, “heartbreaking and upsetting.”
If you’d like to help the disaster relief, text “REDCROSS” to the number 90999, and a $10 Red Cross donation will be charged to your phone bill.  You can also donate online and in person at their office.

Call the Red Cross at: (800) 733-2767 or visit them in person at their office at 1809 5th St, Wichita Falls, TX.
