Transcript for American Red Cross president speaks out about Harvey relief efforts
now as we said, 100% of the money we raised this morning is going to the red cross. And we're joined by the CEO and president of the American red cross, Gail Mcgovern in Austin, Texas, right now and, Gail, that's what people want to know. Where exactly is this money going to go. Well, first let me say that my heart goes out to all the people in Texas and they have been impacted with such an incredible storm and I also want to say thank you, thank you to "Good morning America." Thank you to ABC, thank you to Disney and thank you to all the people that are calling. It's extremely heartwarming. The need is enormous. I mean, it is a big, big area that got impacted and we are spending money on meals as of Tuesday night, 180,000 meals and snacks. We had 32,000 people in our shelters. We are supplying them with cots and blankets, we'll be fanning out into the community with things like bleach and buckets and gloves and things to help them muck out of their homes. The need is enormous and it is so heartwarming to see how the American public just steps up whenever there's a need. It is so heartwarming, Gail, thank you for your good work.
