Red Cross Gives Thanks for Coloradans’ Generosity

Wilfire Donors at the Mile high Chapter

When an outburst of fires threatened communities in numerous locations throughout Colorado this summer, the American Red Cross responded immediately to provide shelter, food, comfort, and recovery assistance; almost as immediately, businesses and individuals from throughout Colorado and across the country stepped up to support Red Cross efforts through an outpouring of generosity.

As we enter this season of thankfulness, we would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to the many people and organizations that gave to support our wildfire relief efforts. Every gift made a difference.

    The Red Cross responded to the wildfires in Colorado by deploying more than 600 trained disaster workers who:

  • Operated 19 shelters and evacuation centers across the state and provided more than 1,900 overnight shelter stays
  • Served more than 67,000 meals and snacks with help from partners like the Salvation Army
  • Deployed 27 emergency response vehicles to provide mobile feeding, disaster assessment, and information
  • Handed out more than 23,000 relief items such as hygiene kits, cleaning supplies, sifters, rakes, work gloves and face masks
  • Provided more than 9,000 health and mental health consultations
  • Every year, the Red Cross spends an average of more than $360 million preparing and responding to disasters across the country and around the world. This includes the cost of maintaining the strong network of staff and volunteers, supplies, warehouses, response vehicles and technical resources needed to respond to nearly 70,000 disasters each year.

    About the American Red Cross:

    The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
