My deepest thanks to all of you who have shown incredible generosity over the past several days. Whether you have given a financial gift, donated blood, or volunteered your time, I’m so proud to have people like you in the Red Cross community, as we help families recover and get back to their lives.
You are making a difference. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, you’ve stepped in to bring critical relief to communities who have lost so much. You are making sure that no one has to face the storm alone and you bring hope where it is needed most.
The need to provide relief is still great. We have a significant amount of work ahead as we help families and individuals recover from the destruction of the storm. If you haven’t had the opportunity to give, please make a gift today.
In just a few days, here are some examples of what you’ve helped us provide:
Tens of thousands of overnight stays in more than 250 emergency shelters;
Nearly 165,000 meals and snacks served;
Approximately 3,000 health and mental health consultations;
230 activated Emergency Response Vehicles to bring meals, water, information and support with damage assessment;
Thousands of relief supplies, such as clean-up kits and hygiene kits for families whose homes were damaged or flooded by the storm.
In times of disaster, people depend on the Red Cross for help, and the Red Cross depends on the support of generous donors to fulfill its mission. Because of you, thousands of people have a warm, dry place to sleep, hot food to eat, and a community to lean on as they work to return life to normal. It has been an incredible response to an unprecedented storm.
Once again, thank you.
With sincere appreciation,
Gail McGovern President and CEO, American Red Cross
P.S. Our gratitude goes out to the networks of NBCUniversal, who will host a “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together” live telethon to benefit the American Red Cross this Friday night from 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET.
