BENEFITING: American Red Cross
After dumping 13.6 trillion gallons of water on the U.S.—enough to fill the Rose Bowl 163,000 times—the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew are still causing great suffering in several states.
Since Hurricane Matthew first threatened the U.S., the American Red Cross and its community partners have served more than 356,000 meals and snacks, distributed nearly 16,000 relief items and provided nearly 79,000 overnight stays in shelters. The Red Cross has mobilized more than 3,000 disaster workers, 170 response vehicles and more than 100 trailers filled with water, ready-to-eat meals, cots, blankets, kitchen items, cleaning supplies and comfort kits, insect repellant, gloves, masks, shovels, rakes, coolers and more. More volunteers, vehicles and supplies are being mobilized now to supplement relief efforts.
Miles Partnership will make a matching donation of up to $5,000.
The Red Cross depends on donations to provide immediate relief. Please consider donating so that they can continue to help people affected by Hurricane Matthew.
