🕐 1 min read

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — An American Red Cross disaster supplies warehouse in North Texas has the distinction of being the group’s biggest facility to serve the most people.

Spokeswoman Anita Foster says the site in Arlington being dedicated Wednesday has 174,000 square feet of space.

The location, capable of serving up to 100,000 people, has a larger supply of products that any other Red Cross location.

The Disaster Field Supply Center has cots, blankets, personal hygiene items, cleanup kits, coolers and cooking supplies stacked on towering shelves.

Similar centers are in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Missouri and Nevada. The new site between Dallas and Fort Worth replaces a smaller facility in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
