"He has experienced some hardship in his life, so he really showed an interest in wanting to help others who have had hardships as well", Jaggers said. "The people here are so generous and that just fuels the American Red Cross".

The American Red Cross of the Mahoning Valley is gathering donations to ensure relief is provided to those in need and not into the hands of the wrong individuals.

The American Red Cross says on Thursday night, 91 trained disaster responders from Wisconsin are either on their way or in Texas helping with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. These gifts enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
