American Red Cross Giving Day
April 21st is “American Red Cross Giving Day”. According to Wikipedia, the American Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief, and disaster preparedness education. Each year it responds to more than 60,000 disasters, including house or apartment fires, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents, explosions and other natural and man-made disasters. They offer assistance that allows people to resume their normal daily activities, by providing shelter, food, health, and mental health services to address basic human needs.
Red Cross Giving Day was established in 2015. It’s a 24 hour rally for public support. If you’d like to support their mission, you can donate money or your time and efforts. To find out more about volunteer opportunities in your area, visit: https://www.redcross.org/local/wisconsin/volunteer.html
