Please consider donating time, supplies or money to this devastated area. Red Cross depends on your donations of blood and money to feed, house and give medical attention to the victims. Red Cross offers immediate assistance when the government is still assessing the situation and Search and Rescue Operations are still under full swing.
The Red Cross is the first medical attention you get, the first meal you get, the first bed you get and the first hug you get after a tragedy strikes, small or large. The Red Cross leads you to your next steps when you do not know what to do and they take your hand to lead you on your path starting over.
The Red Cross offers hope for the future.
