I have been a Red Cross youth volunteer for the past two summers and I am in the process of setting up a Red Cross club at my high school. Volunteering with the Red Cross has given me valuable experience as well as a way to help the community. I began volunteering at a military hospital and I thought it was a great way to get medical experience and serve the military community as well. I have friends and family members that have been affected by both Hurricane Harvey and Irma and want to do what I can to help all those involved.
The ARC helps so many citizens on a daily basis and they rely on monetary donations particularly after disasters such as Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Red Cross responds to an emergency every 8 minutes. Donations pay for Red Cross shelters and the volunteers who are supporting them, transportation for volunteers, meals and snacks in disaster situations, transportation vehicles, gas, mental health services, comfort kits, diapers, and personal hygiene products. Donations also cover cleanup kits and the Red Cross will use financial donations to help people recover and get back on their feet in the challenging weeks and months ahead.
PLEASE, PLEASE consider making a donation! All funds go directly to the American Red Cross and will be used for Hurricane Irma Relief. Please share this link with all your friends and family on social media and spread the word. Click the JOIN THE TEAM AND CREATE YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER button to join my team and maybe create your own fundraiser with a group, school, club or business!! Again, all funds go directly to the Red Cross!! Thank you!!
