The Red Cross volunteers who arrived at the Sorenson’s Wisconsin home after a devastating house fire had never met the family before.
But they knew the one thing that mattered: This was a family with young children and nowhere to go, and they needed help.
As I write this, volunteers in communities like yours across the country are responding to emergencies that upend lives. Right now, we are counting on 10,000 people to make a tax-deductible, year-end gift to support our urgent response to emergencies like this, and so much more.
The Sorensons, thankfully, survived the house fire, though their home did not. And they made it through the aftermath because someone like you made a generous contribution at a moment like this.
The American Red Cross touches lives every second of every minute. Members of our Armed Forces find comfort. Someone in urgent need receives a blood transfusion. A scared family who has lost everything discovers hope.
It wouldn’t happen without you. It couldn’t. So I hope you won’t hold back now, when the need is so great and we only have a few weeks to hit our goal.
