The John T. Vucurevich Foundation has approved a $140,000 grant for the Black Hills Area Chapter of the American Red Cross. 

According to a news release, the donation will allow the local chapter to purchase several items and provide financial support for local disaster relief efforts. 

More specifically, the grant includes: 

  • A truck with the capacity to tow disaster trailers and haul disaster supplies

This summer, the Red Cross opened shelters in Custer, Hot Springs, Rosebud, Pine Ridge and Rapid City due to wildfires.
