Beginning today, all Red Cross disaster services for families impacted by the recent tornado will be centralized at the Red Cross’ Northwest Georgia Chapter, according to a news release.

Anyone still in need of help from the Red Cross is asked to call 706-291-6648.

Red Cross caseworkers can help develop a plan for recovery and provide emergency assistance for such things as food, clothing, relocation, prescription replacement, emotional support and referrals for additional resources, the release stated.

“Though the emergency phase of our response has ended, the Red Cross is not going away," Terri Badour- Duckett, CEO of Georgia’s Red Cross, said.
