ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The local chapter of the Red Cross is asking for donations after spending more than $25,000 providing assistance to victims of the statewide gas outage and a massive apartment fire Friday.
The Royal Crown Apartments on Gibson Boulevard was a total loss, with flare-ups still occurring until Monday. The Red Cross placed about 35 people into local hotel rooms after this fire.
Because the Red Cross does not provide long-term housing, the organization is now working with its community partners such as the United Way to get those residents into more permanent housing.
You can donate online , on the phone (505) 265-8514 or by dropping off a check at any of the following locations around the state:
- American Red Cross in New Mexico, 142 Monroe Street NE , Albuquerque, NM 87108
- American Red Cross in Northwestern New Mexico, 2100 Cortland Drive , Farmington, NM 87401
- American Red Cross in Southeastern New Mexico, 1400 West 2nd Street , Roswell, NM 88203
- American Red Cross in Southwestern New Mexico, 1301 East Griggs , Las Cruces, NM 88001
