PRINCETON, NJ – April 17, 2007 – Flooding in and around Trenton has forced several families to leave their homes. To assist, the American Red Cross of Central New Jersey opened a shelter at Reading Senior Center, which will also be at the ready should the Delaware River pose a problem. The shelter is located at:

  • Reading Senior Center - 15 Ringold Street, Trenton, NJ 08618
    (Closed 4-17 -- clients either relocated or able to return to their homes)

The American Red Cross will continue to provide vital disaster response assistance. The Central New Jersey chapter, which services Mercer, Middlesex and Hunterdon Counties, has teams of disaster volunteers assessing damage in Middlesex County to determine needs for next phase of disaster response.

All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. You can help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year, disasters like flooding in New Jersey, by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to victims of disaster. The American Red Cross honors donor intent. If you wish to designate your donation to a specific disaster please do so at the time of your donation. Call 1-800-REDCROSS or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish). Contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund may be sent to your local American Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P. O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013. Internet users can make a secure online contribution by visiting www.redcross.org.
