Shop Ebay This Week to Support Red Cross Service to Armed Forces

Support military service members and their families when shopping on eBay this week.  From July 7, 2014 through July 14, 2014, eBay customers will be invited to give as little as $1 at checkout to benefit American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces.  Shoppers may also save the Red Cross as their favorite cause, so they can consider a donation to the Red Cross at checkout at any time of year.

For more than 130 years, the American Red Cross has provided comfort and support to members of the United States military. In the past year, the Red Cross has briefed more than 1.1 million people through the Get to Know Us Before You Need Us program, delivered 344,000 emergency communications services and distributed 140,000 comfort, care and therapy items in military hospitals and other facilities. Locally, the Tennessee Volunteer Region has provided 4,970 services to military families, services members and veterans over the past year.

The Red Cross Services to the Armed Forces programs are a cornerstone of who we are and what we do at the Red Cross. We have supported the military and their families for more than a century, from the Civil War in the 1860s to today’s deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Every donation counts to make sure we are able to provide this support each year. The Red Cross Tennessee Volunteer Region thanks eBay for their generous support.
