KENMORE - Volunteer Janet Bartee, of Kenmore, will be deploying on Saturday to assist in the American Red Cross response to Superstorm Sandy. Bartee will be going to New York City to work in Disaster Mental Health, providing emotional support for those recovering from the devastating storm.

Bartee is the 45th volunteer from the eight-county Western New York region who has deployed to assist in the Red Cross relief efforts since Sandy devastated the East Coast in late October, nine of whom have returned for multiple assignments. When Bartee arrives, she will be the fourth Western New York volunteer among the nearly 1,000 Red Cross workers still on the ground supporting survivors as longer-term recovery efforts begin.

The Red Cross continues to provide food, water, health services and emotional support in some neighborhoods. To date, the Red Cross has distributed more than 6.9 million relief and clean-up items and provided more than 10 million meals and snacks since Sandy came ashore. In addition, the Red Cross is working with government and community partners as part of a comprehensive response to help Sandy survivors recover, and trained Red Cross workers are helping to connect people to recovery resources.
