KIMT News 3 — Organizations from all across the country are continuing their efforts to help those affected by the flooding in Colorado.

The American Red Cross says they have deployed more than 800 volunteers to the area and have served more than 46,000 meals and snacks.

Leaders with the Red Cross tell us these services will continue in the area for the foreseeable future.

“We had 12 shelters open last night and are continuing to hand out things to help people with the recovery process,” Freeborn-Mower County Chapter Executive Director Elaine Hansen said. “Including meals, we have 24 mobile feeding units out delivering meals to the affected area and trying to reach as many people as possible.”

She adds volunteers from the southern Minnesota region of the Red Cross have been sent to the area with those usually staying in the region for three weeks.
