She says it costs about $27,000 a-year to keep the ERV filled with supplies.

They’re accepting cash donations today and the Barkley Haggen will be donating 1 percent of the day’s revenue to the ERV.

The local Red Cross has already provided food, clothing, and shelter to 145 disaster victims so far this year.

KGMI will be broadcasting live at the Barkley Haggen from 10:00 to noon to help fill the ERV.

The rest of the Cascade Radio Group will be there throughout the day.
