That money will be used to provide immediate disaster relief services including temporary shelter, food, counseling, and basic health care.

The Red Cross has sent 30 emergency response vehicles and over 200 responders to Moore, Okla. including some volunteers from right here in Lexington.

You can still donate by calling 859-253-1331, visiting redcross.org, or dropping off a check at Fayette Mall this Thursday or Friday, May 23rd or 24th from 3:00-7:00 p.m.
