Residents can send contributions to Yugoslavia

April 01, 1999

Area residents wishing to help relief efforts in war-torn Yugoslavia can send contributions to the American Red Cross office in Hagerstown.

"The Red Cross is the only humanitarian organization still working in Kosovo, providing food and protection," said Cindy Kline of the local Red Cross office.

In addition, the Red Cross is active in Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia where refugees from Kosovo have been streaming because of the fighting and bombing.

Checks may be made out to the American Red Cross, International Relief to Kosovo, Kline said.

The Red Cross office is at 113 S. Prospect St.

"We've gotten some calls from people who wanted to help," Kline said. As soon as the checks are received, they are forwarded on to the international organization based in Yugoslavia.

Most funds are going for shelter, medical attention and food.
