Resolve to Get Involved for Disaster Relief in 2016 (Updated 1/7/16 at 3:30 p.m.)

As the New Year is upon us, the American Red Cross would like to challenge you to Resolve to Get Involved! There are multiple ways to make an impact on your community. This blog post is a reference guide to supporting Disaster Relief and the other programs of the American Red Cross in the DFW Metroplex.

Whether it’s a house fire or tornado, the Red Cross is there to make sure our community begins recovering as soon as possible. Our teams offer shelter, financial assistance, clean-up kits, counseling and many other resources to help disaster victims put their lives back together. However, none of this would be possible without the support of our donors and community partners.

Donate at Redcross.org
Whether a one-time financial gift or a recurring commitment, there are many ways you can give. Visit Redcross.org/donate to learn more (and remember, many corporations offer match programs for financial donations their employees make. Talk to your human resources department to learn more).
