Any new donations to the South Plains Red Cross will go to the general disaster relief fund. Shannon Smith says donations received now are going towards future disasters because as of right now, West has what it needs.
“The chapters there, because they’re so much larger, San Antonio and Austin, right now, their needs are being met at the moment. But of course that can change.” Said Smith.
