The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Last year, our volunteers helped nearly one thousand local families who faced home fires and other disaster situations. They trained nearly 13,000 people in lifesaving skills and assisted over 2,500 military members, veterans and their families and assisted at countless blood drives.
Becoming a member of the Disaster Action Team is one way that you can get involved. As a member of this team, you will provide support, assistance and hope to families in our community who are impacted by residential fire. Fire is our community’s number one disaster and you can help families cope and recover from its devastation. To learn more about the many ways that you, your friends and your family can help, go to redcross.org/midsouth.
During National Volunteer Week, I want to extend my sincerest thanks to the local Red Cross volunteers who help us fulfill our mission here in the Mid-South!
