Red Cross wrote -Behind The Red (BTR) is an active professional group that supports the American Red Cross through action-oriented opportunities that assist the Red Cross in responding to everyday needs in our community through fundraising, communications/advocacy and volunteerism.
The primary purpose of this group is to assist the Red Cross in responding to everyday emergencies. Behind The Red also opens doors for its active members with professional development opportunities. Most importantly, participating in Behind The Red lets members experience firsthand the difference giving back can make in the lives of local residents who turn to the Red Cross for help and training.
Behind The Red is raising money for the American Red Cross of Colorado to pay for a disaster vehicle and to conduct events and activities which fundraise for and support the mission of the Red Cross. By June of 2014, Behind The Red’s goal is to raise nearly $50,000 for the American Red Cross of Colorado.
When disaster strikes, American Red Cross workers are among the first on the scene, providing food, shelter, supplies and hope. Disaster Response vehicles enable them to deliver resources and aid to residents affected by disasters both large and small. Within a year the Red Cross responds to roughly 400 disasters in Colorado, the majority being single family house fires, and helps thousands of residents.
