BELLINGHAM - The Mt. Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross is raising money Friday, March 21, to restock its emergency response vehicle with supplies for families who have been affected by disaster.
Volunteers will be at the Barkley Haggen, 2900 Woburn St., from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday to collect money to help restock the vehicle with blankets, food, water, hygiene kits and first aid supplies.
It costs the local Red Cross about $27,000 per year to keep the vehicle stocked for disaster responses, according to the organization.
People can take tours of the emergency response vehicle, pick up preparedness brochures and make donations Friday. The Barkley Haggen will be donating 1 percent of its revenue for the day to the campaign to fill the emergency response vehicle.
