Last fiscal year, the Red Cross helped 48 people affected by disasters in Southern Maryland. If you would like to donate to the Red Cross contact Ken Waldrop at 410/624-2030 or visit RedCross.org/SoMD.
About the Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region:
More than twice a day the American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region provides basic needs to disaster victims such as emergency shelter, food, clothing and counseling to Maryland families after disasters thanks to major support from donors to the United Way campaigns in Maryland. Each day the Red Cross also provides lifesaving blood to area hospitals; teaches lifesaving skills; 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 humanitarian mission.
