Mid Coast Red Cross sends volunteer to Vermont

Mid Coast Red Cross sends volunteer to Vermont

Sami Berry, Mid Coast Chapter volunteer will head to the Barre, Vermont on Saturday to help provide emergency assistance to families affected by flooding in central Vermont.  This on-going disaster operation has affected more than six hundred people in central and northern Vermont and many homes in the region remain inaccessible due to flood damage to roads and bridges.

“We are so fortunate to have an experienced volunteer, like Sami, who is willing to help our Vermont neighbors in need,” said Paul Clark, Director of Emergency Services.  According to Clark, the water in Barre has receded, but the damage left behind remains.  A Red Cross shelter remains open for clients who are unable to return to their homes and caseworkers have begun assisting clients with short and long range recovery plans.  The Red Cross is working with more than 150 families and we expect that work will continue for the next several months. 

Berry is a long-time Red Cros
