Disaster Assistance

April 18, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 17, 2012 No. 12-046

KANSANS WISHING TO HELP DISASTER AFFECTED AREAS CALL 2-1-1
The Kansas Division of Emergency Management is advising those wishing to donate to the relief of people affected by the massive storm system that hit the state April 14 to call the United Way 2-1-1 number.

“It seems that as soon as a disaster hits, the calls start coming in from people asking how they can help,” said Angee Morgan, deputy director of KDEM. “Calling 2-1-1 is one of the best and fastest ways to do that.”

Calling 2-1-1 from any phone will allow people to donate money, goods, service or volunteer to help. Contributions can also be made by going online to https://give.liveunited.org/page/contribute/contribution1 or at http://www.ksready.gov and clicking on the “Donate to Kansas disaster relief” link.
