This grant will help to ensure services will be available in our community. The Red Cross is ready to help victims who have been devastated by a house fire, flood, tornado, hurricane or man-made disasters.

Working with the emergency managers in our city and state, the Red Cross assists our community to prepare for such emergencies and offers food, shelter, water and mental health support during a crisis. Military families are connected through our Service to Armed Forces programs. Lifesaving courses are offered to the community through our health and safety certification.

“The Mid-Michigan Chapter is thankful for the ongoing support of the Capital Region Community Foundation for making our neighborhoods and cities a safer place to live.” stated John Cauley, Regional Chief Executive Officer of the Central and Northern Michigan Region.
