The Midway Kansas chapter of the American Red Cross has hundreds of care packages now available for families in need.
The packages, which contain basic necessities such as toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels, shampoo and toothpaste, are available at the Red Cross offices at 1900 E. Douglas. The office is open for distribution from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each weekday until Dec. 30, or until the 500 packages have been given away.
Recipients will need to bring a current photo ID and proof of current address – such as a utility bill – and fill out a short application, Red Cross spokesman James Williams said in a prepared statement. For more information about the packages, call 316-219-4000 or go to the website at www.midwaykansas.redcross.org.
