Gulf Coast Residents to Benefit From Gift of Kuwaiti People
Date:7/16/2009

BATON ROUGE, La., July 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Red Cross unveiled today the first of four new facilities designed to help the organization boost its disaster response capabilities along the Gulf of Mexico. The new Red Cross buildings, located in Baton Rouge, LA, Tallahassee, FL, Mobile, AL, and the metropolitan New Orleans area were made possible by a $25 million gift from the Kuwaiti people through the Kuwait Red Crescent Society. The new buildings will store supplies and equipment that will speed the delivery of food and shelter to the survivors of future disasters.

Emergency workers will even be able to sleep and shower on-site if necessary.

Their support will help advance our response during any future disasters in this part of the country."

The structures will also be used to help ensure the Gulf Coast communities are prepared for future emergencies and disasters, with space available to
