BENEFITING: American Red Cross
American Red Cross Statement:
Superstorm Sandy has cut a destructive path up the coast, flooding streets with torrential rainfall and battering homes with dangerous, gale-force winds.
With help from supporters like you, the Red Cross has already opened100+ overnight shelters across multiple states, secured nearly a quarter of a million shelf-stable meals, and deployed more than 1,300 trained emergency workers to the areas where they’re needed most. But as the storm’s effects become fully known, more people will need our help. We’ve got to be there for every one of them.
Your help can provide critical relief like food, shelter, water and more to families affected by disasters like this – make a donation today or start your own fundraiser to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
This is shaping up to be a massive disaster response effort impacting millions – and it’s only possible because compassionate, thoughtful people like you are willing to pitch in and help. Thank you so much for your support.American Red Cross Club at U of I is raising money to help victims of Superstrom Sandy. Please donate!
