As you know, I am actively involved with the American Red Cross as a Harriman Advisor Board Member; I devote my time and my charitable contributions to this great organization. I wanted to connect with you to give more information on the mission and local response for our community. Firstly, we all know that the Red Cross is a First Responder for large scale domestic and international disasters. But you may not know that they respond first to local disasters of all sizes.

During the past 12 months, the Greater New York Region, which operates the largest emergency relief operation in the country, responded to nearly 2,300 local disasters including fires, floods, and building vacates. These various events affected close to 12,000 people, of whom 21% were children. They respond to house fires: offering a warm blanket, a hot meal, and if needed a comfortable bed when disaster strikes local families in our community.

As you may know we are hosting a Community Preparedness Day at Lutheran Medical Center located at 150 55th Street, Brooklyn NY 11220 on Saturday, March 1st at 11 am. A Community Preparedness Day is a large-scale outreach event that helps residents in vulnerable communities become informed and prepared for a local disaster. At the event participants attend a 30-minute training session, after which they receive a complimentary “Go Bag” with basic emergency supplies and information about how to create an emergency plan.

As we start the New Year, I am asking that you consider a tax deductible gift to the Red Cross. Your donation will go towards the purchase of 100 “Go Bags” by February 6th. Your generosity and commitment to the American Red Cross will help train participants, prepare families to prevent disasters, and help alleviate the suffering of your neighbors.

Thank you for helping to make their vital work possible and for your dedication and trust in the American Red Cross.
