One of Connecticut's latest efforts to helping with Hurricane Harvey relief is to take on diverted 211 phone calls. "We are very proud of the fact that our overhead is low because it allows us to spend more on the people we serve". The Red Cross estimates that about 32,000 Texans have sought refuge in 250 shelters - a number that's expected to climb to 50,000 over the weekend.

Leslie Schaffer, Regional Executive for the Red Cross Iowa Region says, "Thank you to Casey's for stepping up and supporting the Red Cross relief effort". Bass Pro Shops announced it is sending more than 80 Tracker boats to government agencies and rescue organizations aiding the Texas response efforts. But, he says, volunteering is more important.
