The Holidays Are Here!
The season of giving thanks is upon us and I want to express my gratitude to Red Cross volunteers, donors, community partners and staff members who carry out the mission of the American Red Cross.
Our mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. You allow us to carry out this mission of providing compassionate care to those in need.
Your time, treasure, talent and teamwork allow us to respond when disaster strikes, whether it’s a single-family house fire, a tornado that affects hundreds, or a hurricane that affects tens of thousands. You help provide shelter, food, clothing and hygiene items to families who have lost everything, along with health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet. You help military members, veterans and their families prepare for, cope with, and respond to the challenges of military service including emergency communications and support to wounded warriors and veterans. Here at home and around the world, our vital work is made possible by you.
For the American Red Cross, the season of giving is year around. Your gift of your time, talent and treasure throughout the year makes a difference in the lives of others. You may see these gifts in action through our reports, statistics and photos. The volunteers who meet with our clients daily get to look into the eyes of those you are helping and see the difference it makes in that individual’s life.
Thank you for your gifts that make our mission possible!
