Twister: This Ain't No Summer Movie

American Red Cross volunteers from across the state are converging on Central Texas to heal the hurt from this past week's devestating tornado storm disaster. Members of Red Cross' national network of volunteers are standing at the ready to assist as soon as the needs of the area are assessed by their Rapid Response Team. According to Paul Flaningan, a Red Cross worker from San Antonio, they are most in need of cash donations. They are referring most donations of goods to the Salvation Army and any interested blood donors to the Central Texas Blood Center. The blood center has put out an urgent call for both O positive and O negative, but in times like these, needs all types. The Scott & White Medical Center in Temple has established a blood drive, as well, for those of you who live in the north end. American Red Cross: 928-4271 or 800/928-4271; Central Texas Blood Center: 451-2222; Salvation Army, 476-1111; Scott & White Medical Center, 817/724-2430.
