When and if the snow hits, it's entirely possible that we could find ourselves needing to open a shelter or warming station as we did after lake effect snow shut down portions of the NYS Thruway in December 2010. The people coming to the Red Cross for help will expect to be provided warm, clean blankets. Many of those blankets made their way downstate last fall to be used in shelters following the flooding and power outages caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. But thanks to the support of the Western New York community, we're once again ready to help when called upon!
