The Key Chapter of the American Red Cross got a boost to its budget Wednesday.
The chapter received a $500 donation from the Epsilon Eta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. The money will help out with local disasters.
The funds were raised during the sorority's recent Super Bowl Basket Giveaway.
Red Cross officials say the money is badly needed right now.
"The number of fires has increased dramatically, and we have spent half our budget," said Susan Wehr, executive director of the Red Cross. "So any donation people can give toward the Red Cross Disaster Budget will be so appreciated. We hope people keep in mind that the next disaster could be yours."
If you'd like to make a donation to the local disaster fund, you may find out how to do so by calling the Key Chapter at 601-485-5151.
