To the editor:
When Red Cross Month began on March 1, a few weeks ago, we couldn't have predicted what would happen.
The very next day, deadly tornadoes ripped through communities in the Midwest and South, leaving thousands of families reeling as they struggled to clean up the wreckage of their homes and rebuild their lives.
Almost immediately, Red Cross relief was mobilized to the scene. Donations flooded in from all over the country, as our responders, volunteers, and supporters pitched in time and donated blood. It added up to an incredible outpouring of support that truly embodies the collective spirit of Red Cross Month.
Our work together this month continues to prove what we've always known: for the Red Cross community, everyone in need is a neighbor, whether they're down the street, across the country or around the world.
Whether you've recently donated, given blood, taken a class or received help after a disaster, we thank you, and we would love to hear from you share your Red Cross story today.
Thank you so much for all you do.
President and CEO
