Makes the case for Red Cross donations

Every eight minutes, American Red Cross volunteers meet a family devastated by a home fire or other disaster. When a family has lost nearly everything, they rely on generous Red Cross supporters for relief and hope.

On March 27—Red Cross Giving Day—families are counting on your support. The need for disaster relief is constant. Last year, the Red Cross helped 2,250 New Jersey families affected by home fires with assistance for shelter, food and clothing. Also of note, during last year’s record disasters like hurricanes and wildfires, more than 200 disaster workers from New Jersey deployed to help families in communities like ours impacted by those disasters.

By donating at redcross.org/givingday, you can help in the first devastating hours of a disaster.

• Support a family in urgent need for one day: A gift of $88.50 can provide a family of three with a day’s worth of food, blankets and other essentials.

• Supply warm meals: A donation of $60 can help provide six people with a nourishing meal.

• Deliver cozy blankets: A gift of $30 can ensure that children and families stay warm.

This Red Cross Giving Day, our goal is to help 25,000 families affected by disaster, and we need your support. On March 27, please consider uniting with thousands of people like you by making a gift at redcross.org/givingday.

Each day, our lifesaving mission is powered by compassionate volunteers and donors. We are grateful for this commitment. On behalf of the families we serve, thank you.
