Local Red Cross Director Helping With Hurricane Relief

The Executive Director of the American Red Cross of North Central Ohio, based in Findlay, is joining the ongoing Red Cross Hurricane Ian disaster relief operation in Florida.

Todd James will be serving as the Public Affairs Manager, overseeing efforts to communicate vital information on services available to families and communities.

He is one of more than 20 Red Cross workers from the Northern Ohio region who are providing assistance to residents who were impacted by the devastation caused by the hurricane.

Hundreds of people remain in shelters in Florida more than two weeks after Hurricane Ian devastated the state.

In addition to providing food and shelter, the Red Cross and other organizations involved in relief efforts are striving to help people who can’t return to their homes.

Ian is a major disaster that is bigger than any one group can manage on its own. The Red Cross will be part of the solution — but not the only solution — to help families recover.
