BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Jan 31, 2016
My community service project is to help the American Red Cross raise funds so that they can provide disaster relief to those in need. Financial contributions allow the Red Cross to purchase relief supplies close to the disaster site which avoids delays in helping disaster victims.
The American Red Cross also cares about pets. They have a Pets and Disaster Safety Checklist to help protect your pets and they offer First Aid and CPR classes to save pets. They also have a pet therapy program where they bring in pets to help wounded soldiers.
