Local Red Cross heads to Texas, explains how you can help

Red Cross has been quick getting volunteers out to help those who have lost everything in the Houston, Texas area.
Two volunteers there are from Mariposa helping manage shelters and assess damage.
They expect to have additional deployments in the coming days. 
They say plenty of people have been wanting to help and while some want to send items to Texas, officials say the best way is to send money. 
If you’d like to help donate money to the Red Cross relief effort you can call 1-800-Red-Cross or you can text “Harvey” to 90999 to donate $10.
The text donation will appear on your phone bill.
