North Central Texas Chapter Heroes
Disasters can, and do, happen anywhere, at any time. Locally, our extremely cold, dry winter has resulted in more devastating fires and an almost 50% increase in direct financial aid, food, clothing and shelter to local house fire victims.
Nationally and internationally, the significant increase in funding relief efforts for major disasters such as the hurricane in the Philippines has resulted in a deficit in funds available for disasters in our area. The results to available local funding have been staggering.
The annual Red Cross HEROES for the American Red Cross campaign, to be held now through June 30, will raise funds to address this deficit.
