For more than 100 years, the Red Cross has been growing heroes right nere in Louisiana and sending them around the county to communities during times of disaster. In order for the Red Cross to meet our commitments to these communities now and in the future, we need citizens willing to be "Heroes" for the Red Cross.
Join Joshua and become an EVERYDAY HERO by donating towards our $1000 goal.
What can $1000 do? Glad you asked!
$1,000 can cover the cost of...
• 167 blankets for people affected by a disaster.
• clothing for nine children who lost everything in a house fire.
• meals and lodging for five days for a family of three displaced from their home.
• a babysitting skills class for 14 youth.
• training 11 individuals to learn how to help someone in a cardiac or breathing emergency.
All funds will support local Red Cross services such as local family fires; food, shelter and aid during times of disaster; support for military families; and training of citizens in lifesaving CPR and first aid skills. Any financial support of the campaign is tax-deductible.
