(WKBW release) An American Red Cross volunteer from Western New York is deploying to assist in the tornado relief efforts in Oklahoma.

According to a news release from the American Red Cross:

Tom Daley of Tonawanda is scheduled to leave Saturday and will serve in Client Casework, meeting one-on-one with affected residents to determine their needs.

The American Red Cross tornado relief effort in Oklahoma will continue through the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Emergency aid stations and shelters will be open and disaster workers will be handing out food and relief supplies to those affected by this week’s devastating storms.

Ten emergency aid stations are open where people can come to get food, relief supplies, health and mental health care and information about what other help is available. In addition, meals are available at feeding sites and being distributed throughout the community, along with relief supplies.
