The American Red Cross has joined forces with the Harlem Globetrotters as its official charity partner, to help communities across the country prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters big and small.
The Harlem Globetrotters’ Great Assist initiative, launched in October 2015, promises to spread 100 million smiles over the next decade through sportsmanship and service. During the first year of this two year partnership, the team will join the Red Cross, along with local fire departments and other community partners, as the organization works to install its one millionth smoke alarm by October 2017 to help Americans stay safer from home fires. The Red Cross has already installed more than 500,000 smoke alarms nationwide, and saved at least 116 lives.
