The American Red Cross has set up a national toll-free call center to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina with financial resources and referrals to other services.
To apply for aid, those calling in must be ready to provide their name, pre-storm address, ZIP code and home telephone number to call center agents.
Callers will be given a client information number and will be given instructions to take it to a local financial institution to receive the funds. Here's the number: 1-800-975-7585.
