On April 21 – national Red Cross Giving Day – the L.A. Region is rallying Southern Californians to give what they can to help the Red Cross meets its critical and lifesaving mission of helping families who have been affected by disaster or emergencies.
Every year, the Red Cross responds to nearly 66,000 disasters nationwide – the vast majority of these are home fires. In the Los Angeles Region, the Red Cross responds to two to three home fires every single day. In most cases, the families have lost everything – the roof over their heads, their clothes, and their most cherished possessions.
It takes just $88.50 to support a family of three with basic essentials for one day following a disaster. Giving Day’s #help1family effort can help a family begin to recover from a disaster. A gift to our one-day awareness effort can provide urgent relief like a day’s worth of food, plus blankets and other essentials
Thank you to the following L.A. Region businesses that are supporting this year’s Giving Day campaign:
