Local American Red Cross gets new forklift and donation

WACO - The local chapter of the American Red Cross was presented with a generous donation Tuesday.

They got a new forklift, as well as $20,000 from Briggs Equipment. The new forklift will help move supplies and bulk donations quickly. Officials for the Red Cross say the new forklift will be put to use right away.

"We'll start using it right now," says Mark Felton. "For example, we are moving pallets of water to Fort Hood right now to support in the shooting aftermath. We will distribute water and supplies around our 17 county area."

The Red Cross says they get a lot of donations in bulk. The forklift will no longer force them to breakdown those donations into smaller amounts.
