(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Red Cross of Missouri is holding a one-stop-shop flood relief event on Tuesday, June 25, to assist those who have been impacted by the recent flooding across the state.
The multi-agency resource center (MARC) event will take place from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. The closest event to St. Joseph is taking place at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence.
Red Cross Communications and Marketing Director, Angie Springs, says several agencies offering assistance in flood relief, such as insurance help and food resources, will be present at the event.
"It's just a way to really get a lot of help in one place," Springs said. "You know, it's difficult when you're recovering from a disaster and so if we can simplify that by having everybody under one roof, it makes it a lot easier on those that are impacted."
Another MARC event will be held in Brunswick, Missouri at the Brunswick R-2 High School, located at 1008 County Road. This event will be Wednesday, June 26, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
If you are unable to make it to the event, the Red Cross has set up a hotline to provide further help for those impacted by floods. You can call the hotline at 314-516-2769.
