Hoosier volunteers needed to help Texas storm victims

Hoosier volunteers needed to help Texas storm victims

Actress Sandra Bullock is joining the list of celebrities to donate to victims of Hurricane Harvey - and she is giving a whopping $1 million.

"91 cents of every dollar that the Red Cross spends, goes to humanitarian efforts", Larson said.

Harris said more volunteers are welcome and no experience is necessary.

"Up until about five minutes to 9 last night, we had people stopping by", Volunteer Brad Larson said. There are several ways to help this organization.

The American Red Cross is the big name in disaster relief.

Sandra Bullock has donated $1 million to help those hard hit by flooding in Texas.

Instead, she "re-claimed the snake" and doesn't give a damn about the thousands of people who called her one. She even would've walked away with an award in her hand (Best Collaboration with Zayn Malik) if she went.

Per Forbes, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax deductible donations. "I mean it's definitely easy to wire transfer some money so they can buy water out there", said American Red Cross New Mexico Regional Philanthropy Officer Cynthia Cisneros.

For Bullock, she's happy to do her part in helping the organization provide for people in need.

Anyone interested in volunteering will need to fill out a health form to answer questions about physical capabilities and limitations, though the Red Cross says there are plenty of opportunities for everyone.

The pictures and video coming out of Houston where people are still dealing with Harvey are powerful. "It's unsafe there, and if you're not part of a certified or qualified relief organization, you'll be turned away". She has become an advocate to support the tragedy and is encouraging others to help as well."I'm just grateful I can do it", she says of her donation.

"Some of the skills we are teaching here today are, how do we get there, how do we address a family that's lost everything", Burke said.
