Red Cross and Hotel Team Up Disaster Relief

Posted: Updated:

Disaster can strike anyone, at any time. With the recent rash of fires in Minot in the past few months, it's no secret that it can hit close to home.

The American Red Cross has teamed up with Four Points by Sheraton to kick off the 2014 Rooms for Red Cross event. The goal is to provide rooms for individuals who have experienced a disaster.

"Last year, throughout the state of North Dakota, over 450 hotel rooms were donated to those folks who were affected by disasters or other problems that they had. So it's a great program that helps a lot of people right here in the community," says Red Cross Chapter Executive Allan McGeough.

David Wick, Four Points Sheraton General Manager says as part of the program, he will be working with other hotels and general managers to get them on board. That way the Red Cross can get the rooms that they need.

This is the first year that the program is entering the Minot area. So far, the Four Points by Sheraton has donated 30 nights of stay for the year. If you would like to get involved, contact Allan McGeough at 852-2828.
