The American Red Cross is entering the second season as the official charity of the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters. Through this partnership, the Red Cross has been invited by the Harlem Globetrotters to join forces under the team’s Great Assist initiative to help communities across America prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters big and small.
The Harlem Globetrotters’ Great Assist initiative aims to spread 100 million smiles over the next 10 years through sportsmanship and service. Throughout the partnership, the Harlem Globetrotters will join the Red Cross in advancing the charity’s mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Join with us as we raise urgently needed funds to support families during times of crisis throughout the year. Text ASSIST to 90999 to make a $10 donation to bring help and hope to those who need it most.
The Harlem Globetrotters will feature the Red Cross at nearly 300 games throughout the basketball season, including one in South Dakota.
