I've committed to this fundraising event for the American Red Cross for the 3rd time. I believe in their mission and have seen first hand how the Red Cross helps so many people throughout our Gulf Coast communities. In Houston, there is average of two house fires every day that volunteers respond to offering disaster victims shelter, food, clothing, and advice about other non-profit partners who offer additional assistance. Not to forget large scale disasters across the country, hosting Prepardness, First Aid, CPR, and other life saving training. They help military families by providing emergency communication, counseling and facilitating financial assistance. And in our area offer non emergency medical transportation in some counties.
This is all possible because of the support we receive from our volunteers, United Way, grants, foundations, and our donors like you.
