As communities across the country continue to face great uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our signature 2020 Fire + Ice Gala. We recognize that now is simply not the time to gather more than 600 people to celebrate the work of the American Red Cross.
From April 23rd to April 30th we will be celebrating the extraordinary work of the Red Cross by taking you on a multi-day digital tour of our mission in action. Learn how the Red Cross responds in times of uncertainty, how we help those in need, and how you can join us in making a difference in the lives of others. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as we share our stories of providing hope, help and healing when its needed most.
The Red Cross is adapting in order to meet the challenges presented by this pandemic so that we can continue to support individuals and families who rely on our lifesaving work. Now more than ever we need your support and friendship to:
- Ensure that we can maintain a sufficient supply of blood to help patients in need.
- Ensure that we can continue to provide critical relief services to people affected by disasters big and small.
- Ensure that the men and women serving in our military and their families continue to have support and critical community services during this challenging time.
Even during a pandemic, emergencies don’t stop, and neither do we. For that reason, we hope that we can count on your continued support.
Please consider making a financial contribution, donating blood and signing up as a Red Cross volunteer. Together Sleeves Up, Hearts Open, All In we can ensure a strong Red Cross for our community.
