Panhandle Helping Bombing Victims

By Staff Reports

North Idaho residents have donated more than $15,000 to the American Red Cross since last week’s bombing in Oklahoma City.

“It’s been overwhelming,” Panhandle Chapter spokeswoman Wendy Meador said Wednesday of the response.

Donations continue to come in. A final tally won’t be available for some time, she said.

In Spokane County, donations will exceed $100,000, said Red Cross officials there.

Nationally, $6.8 million has been donated since the explosion, agency officials said. That’s enough to meet needs arising from that crisis, officials said.

Funds that were designated by donors for Oklahoma City will be spent for relief services for those affected by the bombing, said Spokane chapter spokeswoman Tina Maurais. Other contributions will go to the National Disaster Relief Fund.

Donations may be sent to the Panhandle Chapter at 212 S. 11th St., Suite 3, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814.
