Help sent to Van Wert

The Cincinnati Red Cross has sent four volunteers to Van Wert, Ohio, the area hardest hit in the state by storms on Nov. 10.

Karen Ziegler, director of community health and education services; Jerry Dickens and Darrell Meader, health service specialists; and a fourth volunteer who does not want to be identified will work with storm victims in the Van Wert area for three weeks.

Anyone wishing to help victims of the Nov. 10 storms or other disasters can make a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Call 1-800-HELP NOW or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish).

Contributions can also be sent to the Cincinnati Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, 720 Sycamore St., Cincinnati 45202; or the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013.
