LOS ANGELES, November 29, 2021 — Angelinos! Step up on November 30 for Giving Tuesday, an opportunity for the City of Angels to come together on the same day to support the urgent humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross.
In 2021, Angelinos and people across California faced increased emergency needs from severe disasters, blood shortages, and the ongoing pandemic. For 140 years, the Red Cross mission has relied and thrived on the generosity of the American people who donate money, blood, and their time as volunteers to alleviate suffering brought on by disasters and other humanitarian challenges.
“In addition to the urgent demand for lifesaving blood, 2021 saw California hard hit again by larger and more destructive wildfires” said Joanne Nowlin, CEO for the Red Cross Los Angeles Region, “By making a gift to the Red Cross this Giving Tuesday, our local communities are advancing a vital mission to help when help can’t wait.”
On Giving Tuesday and throughout the holidays, visit redcross.org and to make a financial donation or an appointment to give blood or platelets. Angelinos can also learn about wide ranging volunteer and humanitarian opportunities across the region.
