Tippah County donates to American Red Cross

By NEMS Daily Journal

RIPLEY – Tippah County supervisors approved a $3,000 donation to the American Red Cross on Friday after an appeal from the agency’s executive director.
Red Cross Director Patty Tucker summarized disaster relief efforts the American Red Cross has provided in Tippah County during the past year, including last May’s tornado and 16 house fires, with services totaling more than $24,000.
Tucker noted that the agency has not received any budget allocation from the county during the past two fiscal years and asked to be returned to the regular budgeted agency list.
