Red Cross issues Sandy progress report

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

The American Red Cross issued a progress report this week on its efforts over the past month to provide assistance to people affected by Superstorm Sandy.

In the first month after the storm, the Red Cross has provided almost 79,000 shelter stays and more than 7.4 million meals and snacks. They distributed more than 5.2 million relief items, including cold weather items like coats and blankets.

The Red Cross has also raised nearly $170 million to date for the victims and estimates that it will spend most of that on the emergency relief through the end of December.

The Memphis chapter of the Red Cross deployed a number of volunteers to help with the recovery effort.
