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.
Red Cross staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly into the New Year to support families impacted by disasters in at least 18 states. As many of you are aware, the Mississippi and other rivers have reached historic levels and communities across Missouri have been inundated by flood waters. Millions more people are under flood warnings across multiple states.
Thank you to each of you for your support and commitment to the Red Cross. Although some of you donate your time while others donate financially or through a blood donation, each are you play a critical role at the Red Cross.
As a member of the Red Cross family, I want to share two video links with you this month. One is an update from Brad Kieserman, Vice President of Operations and Logistics, and the other is one of the many stories shared from the Missouri Flood response.
Thank you again for the role that you play at the Red Cross!
