Great Falls, MT, May 2, 2017 – The American Red Cross of Montana is pleased to announce that U.S. Bank has donated $5,000 to the Red Cross in honor of Red Cross Giving Day.
Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising campaign to help people in Montana communities and across the country each and every day. Donations on Giving Day help in those minutes, hours and days after a disaster, when families need it most. Visit redcross.org/givingday to learn more.
“We are very grateful to U.S. Bank for their generous donation in support of our work in Montana,” said Diane Wright, executive director of Montana Red Cross.
With their $5,000 donation, U.S. Bank is joining the Red Cross’ Montana 100 Society, a select group of corporate and individual donors who support the American Red Cross of Montana’s lifesaving programs and services with contributions of $5,000 or more.
“U.S. Bank is proud to join the Red Cross’ Montana 100 Society,” said Todd E. Neighbor, assistant vice president and branch manager at U.S. Bank. “The business community in Montana is increasingly aware of the need to actively prepare for and respond to disasters. We understand that supporting our local Red Cross chapter is one of the most effective ways to accomplish that goal.”
“The steadfast and continued financial support of Montana 100 Society members like U.S. Bank allows the Red Cross to provide critical services to Montanans after disasters strike,” says Wright.
