The American Red Cross Kern Chapter is deploying three volunteers to assist with the earthquake relief in Napa, Calif.
Julie Womack and Jim Steel will leave Thursday evening to help residents affected by Sunday's earthquake.
Alma De Lara left Thursday morning to work one-on-one with affected families to determine their needs and provide resources or referrals.
Womack will be working at the shelter that has been housing dozens of residents who have been forced from their homes due to earthquake damage. Volunteers at the shelter have been providing food, drinks, comfort, and more to the affected residents.
Steele will be working in damage assessment to help families determine the level of earthquake damage, so Red Cross can assist them with making a plan to recover.
The Red Cross has been on scene helping residents recover since the 6.1 earthquake struck the region early Sunday morning.
Local workers opened two evacuation shelters, with one still active to assist residents whose homes have been damaged or destroyed.
Over the coming days, volunteers will continue conducting disaster assessments in affected areas and provide assistance to residents in need.
