The Red Cross responds to more than 5 house fires a week here in Idaho! Did you know they also connect more then 1,100 families to their deployed loved ones, reunite over 30 families torn apart by war, teach nearly 40,000 people live saving skills and distribute over 60,000 units of life saving blood a year! And that is just here in Idaho.
For all the children who lives are saved and families helped by the Red Cross in our own back yard we are asking each of our students to consdier a donation of $2 per student to help our freinds and neighbors.
