A Year End Letter to the Editor from the American Red Cross

In total, our volunteers work over 152,000 hours in our community and beyond to alleviate suffering and build more resilient neighborhoods. Their compassion and commitment never wavered despite the challenges of working in a pandemic.


Thanks for the countless blood donors who roll up their sleeves to give the gift of life.  Their efforts especially more meaningful as donors came out to give convalescent plasma to patients battling COVID-19.


And just last week our community joined us in our work with Service to the Armed Forces by collecting and donating close to 4,000 socks and undergarments for VA Hospitals across the region.


And a heartfelt thanks to our health care heroes who continue to sacrifice so much to help our region get through this crisis.


And finally, a thank you to our supporters who believe in the Red Cross mission, your support ensures we can be there 24/7 for our community.

Wishing you all a happy and safe 2021. Let’s continue to look out for one another.
