After a large winter storm hit Western Washington on January 19th, many residents were left in the dark due to widespread power outages. Over the course of several days, the Red Cross managed or supported eight shelters throughout King, Pierce and Thurston counties, provided 310 overnight stays and served more than 3,400 meals and snacks. The shelters became a home away from home where people could be safe and warm.
