BELLINGHAM ,Wash. – You can help the Red Cross help people in our community who are recovering from disasters simply by going grocery shopping today.
The Mount Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross is holding their “Fill the ERV event in Bellingham at the Barkley Haggen store.
Stacy rice with the red cross explains what exactly the ERV does.
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.
