EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2018
When disaster strikes, help can’t wait. People need shelter, food, water, first aid and emotional support. They count on the American Red Cross to be there. Join us in providing a Shelter of Hope!
Shelter of Hope was developed as a way to help draw attention to the Red Cross and showcase just how crucial donations are to support the Red Cross mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies. Local Red Cross CEO Sean Mahoney will stay in the simulated disaster shelter until the $500,000 fundraising goal is reached.
Follow along with the Shelter of Hope campaign as we travel throughout San Diego County in a mock disaster shelter, raising awareness and funds for the services provided by the Red Cross:
