With tales of disorganization and bad optics, as well as one city leader “begging you not to send them a penny” — the organization is hoping to redeem itself with a new and improved website after theirs crashed Sept. 11.

“This unprecedented demand challenged our infrastructure and caused us to temporarily suspend service,” the organization said at the time.

At some point today, the website will go live. The Red Cross says they are working overtime with its IT department to make sure the launch goes smoothly.
