Red Cross to Distribute Flood Clean Up Kits
Distribution planned for Sunday morning in several impacted neighborhoods
Volunteers from the Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross will distribute free clean up kits in neighborhoods along the Monroe County shoreline who have been impacted by ongoing flooding.
On Sunday morning, two Red Cross vehicles, each equipped with more than 100 kits, will traverse areas of Edgemere Drive, Old Edgemere Drive and West Beach Drive as well as immediate surrounding areas. Earlier this week, trained disaster assessment teams went into affected areas to determine the extent of flooding, identify high-needs neighborhoods and to map out a distribution plan.
The Red Cross also remains in constant communication and coordination with the Monroe County Office of Emergency Management.
The Red Cross urges all area residents to prepare for flooding and other disasters..
