This year’s March is Red Cross Month, Light the City Red project was a fantastic success. Please accept our most sincere, thank you!
Our building partners in downtown Dallas, including the Omni Hotel, Comerica Bank Tower, Bank of America Plaza, AT&T Discovery District and Whitacre Tower, One Arts Plaza and KPMG Plaza-Dallas could not have looked any better.
In Fort Worth, Sundance Square, the new City Hall (previously known as the Pier 1 building) and the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum Tower also illuminated the heart of the city in red. We also want to send out a big thank you to the Toyota campus and Legacy West in Plano as well as to Arlington for lighting up their downtown square and Abrams Street sculptures.
Thank you so much for helping us raise the spirits of our volunteers and staff. We could not have celebrated this eighth annual Giving Day tradition without your grace and support.
More than 51,000 supporters from across the country generously donated to help provide emergency shelter, food, relief items, emotional support and aid for families affected by future disasters in the U.S.
On behalf of the people we serve, thank you. Your generosity and support help the Red Cross provide relief and hope when it is needed most.
