The Empire State Building Shines a Light on the Red Cross and Fire Safety

Every eight minutes, an American Red Cross volunteer comes to the aid of their neighbor to help them cope with and recover from one of the most difficult moments imaginable: the loss of a home, possessions, a pet or even a loved one to a local disaster. The vast majority of these are home fires.

In Greater New York, this amounts to 10,000+ residents every year who turn to us for help.

On the evening of Tuesday, March 31, the Empire State Building shined a light on the needs of those who have lost everything and the efforts made across the country to help prevent these tragic events.

The Red Cross invited all to join-in on this effort.
