Thanks to our corporate and foundation partners, we were able to assist 3,484 families, providing an average financial assistance of $625 per family case, and responded to 2,061 disaster operations through the first 10 months of 2022. We take great pride in our annual Home Fire Campaign, and this past fiscal year we responded to 1,971 home fires, installed 2,747 free smoke alarms and created 2,003 plans for home fire preparedness.
Our veterans have benefitted from these partnerships as well, allowing us to provide 14,334 services to military members, veterans and their families, with a total of 8,045 Service to the Armed Forces emergency and critical community cases and briefed 7,017 individuals through our 'Get to Know Us' program. We even participated in Operation Dyess Kids where the children of military men and women were able to go through a mock deployment on the flightline at Dyess Air Force Base.
This Thanksgiving, on behalf of the Red Cross we want to give a special thank you to our Annual Disaster Giving Program members, Disaster Responder Program members, and Ready365 partners who have supported the Red Cross mission throughout 2022, allowing us to help during some of the most vulnerable moments in people's lives. Because of partners like you, Red Crossers can show up with sleeves rolled up and hearts open to make traumatic situations a little better.
