The Heart of Texas Red Cross has seen a decrease in donations the past few weeks.
Which is surprising considering the need after hurricane Irene.
But for those of you interested in donating the Red Cross has some suggestions for where your monetary donations would be best used.
"We may have enough donations to help assist what we need in Irene, but we're also deploying volunteers to other areas. So if they can donate to our disaster relief fund then it goes anywhere that we have the need," Lana Gann with the Heart of Texas Red Cross said.
This past weekend the Waco Red Cross deployed two vans to New York to help with food resources.
If you're looking to help in hurricane disaster areas, the red cross has a fund specifically for the 2011 hurricane season.
