By WKTV News

Oneida, N.Y. (WKTV) -  The American Red Cross will provide snacks and beverages, cleaning supplies, and physical and mental health services from 3 to 7 p.m. today (Monday, July 8) to residents in the city of Oneida in Madison County who have been affected by the recent flooding.

Three vehicles will work as a team to slowly canvas a 20-block area in Oneida. The vehicle will use a public address system to notify residents of their arrival.

Red Cross volunteers will be available on all three vehicles to speak with residents about their feeding, clean-up and support needs, and the Red Cross will plan accordingly to meet those needs.


Also on Monday, the Red Cross will continue mobile feeding in the villages of Whitesboro in Oneida County and Ilion in Herkimer County. Through Sunday, the American Red Cross had provided 7,511 meals, 14,889 snacks, 2,215 clean-up kits and 566 comfort kits to residents in Madison, Oneida, Herkimer and Montgomery counties whose homes have been damaged or destroyed by the floods.
