RENO, Nevada (KOLOTV.com) -- Sunday, January 28, 2007:
The local Red Cross is asking for funds after officials say numerous local emergencies have depleted their funds.
Just last week, 6 house fires had the agency providing housing, funding, food, and other support for 14 people. The organization also helped 72 victims from the Mizpah fire last October.
The Red Cross's Caroline Punches says they normally help about 200 people every year. They served more than that in the last six months.
Donations can be dropped off or mailed at the Red Cross offices. The address is:
Red Cross Donations
1190 Corporate Boulevard
