SHERMAN -- Many Grayson County residents whose homes were flooded are still in shelters Tuesday evening.

Twenty-two people made the Downtown Municipal Building their home Monday night. The Red Cross fed 38 people Tuesday and are expecting more Tuesday evening.

They also have a shelter set up at the Fairview Baptist Church, housing elderly residents who were evacuated from a nearby nursing home.

Red Cross volunteer Beverly Martin says anyone who comes to the shelters will be helped.

"It’s a place to stay, to have food to eat, to feel safe. We'll be with these people until the last person is helped."

The Red Cross is always in need of volunteers. To find out how you can help, you can call them at 903-465-1330.

    I would like to thank you for all that you are doing for these local flood victims. I would also like to inform you that I am organizing a music festival in Gainesville in which all of the proceeds are going to the Red Cross. Is there a certain fund for the Gainesville and Sherman flood victims or should all benefits be made out to the Red Cross in general? If there is a specific account, please email the information to me. Thank you, Holly Graves
