Red Cross to Open Shelters to Assist Those Without Power

Written By Editor on 4/19/22 | 4/19/22

Red Cross volunteers and staff are responding to the needs of thousands of Southern Tier residents impacted by power outages in several counties resulting from a major spring snowstorm.  In response to requests from the Broome County Office of Emergency Management, the Red Cross is opening two shelters in the area as of 5:00 p.m. today.  Those shelters will be located at:

Trinity Memorial Episcopal Church

118 Oak Street, Binghamton NY

Deposit Fire Department

130 Second Street, Deposit NY

Staff and volunteers have been working throughout the day to plan and implement sheltering and feeding for area residents.  The response comes in the midst of National Volunteer Recognition Week and volunteers are particularly important to the Red Cross as they comprise approximately 90% of the American Red Cross of Western New York workforce.  The need for volunteers has never been greater as we experience larger and more intense disasters across the country. Please consider becoming a Red Cross volunteer to help families in need. We’ll provide all of the training you need, visit to learn more.
