Giving Day Gives You a Chance to #help1family

Donate Now Through Giving Day, March 28, 2018

By Patrick Kunklier, Communications Volunteer and Board Member

Once a year, Giving Day brings American Red Cross supporters together to help families who have been impacted by a home fire or other disaster, such as floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. Together, we provide urgently needed Red Cross services to help families get back on their feet.

Your Giving Day gift can provide hope and critical relief, like food, supplies, shelter and other essentials to people who need it most.

“The Red Cross 2018 Giving Day goal is to help 25,000 families. Your support provides families with food, blankets, and other essentials,” said Mike Parks, CEO of the Northeast Ohio Region.  “And you don’t have to wait until March 28 to be part of Giving Day. Whether you donate $10 or $500 or more, the tax-deductible gift you make today will count toward the Red Cross Giving Day goal.”

Parks added, “Please also encourage your family and friends to give a gift to help the families who urgently need Red Cross assistance after a home fire or other disaster.”

  1. Everyone knows it takes a lot of effort to help a family after a disaster. But, sometimes all that is needed is that stuffed Mickey Mouse in the hands of a frightened child to start the process of recovery.
