An American Red Cross Client Service Center will be open October 9th – October 16th.
The service center is located at Longleaf Business Park south of Lake Wales on US 27, address 1750 Longleaf Blvd. Lake Wales, FL 33859. Hours of Operation are 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (last client intake at 6:00 PM).
The Red Cross will take applications for financial assistance for Polk County residents whose homes have sustained major damage or have been destroyed. Households qualify if they own their home or rent. Clients must be able to verify their residence and the number of people in the home. The Red Cross has addresses of damaged homes in Polk County and applicants will be screened against that list. If a household is not on the list, a Red Cross damage assessment team will go out and verify the damage to the home.
