Open letter from the Red Cross

Dear Friend:

With the holidays just around the corner, I want to take a moment to celebrate you.

Because of you, we helped more than 93,000 families this year in the wake of home fires and other emergencies.

Because of you, we served more than 893,000 meals and snacks in the U.S. Because of you, we installed more than 125,700 smoke alarms through our home fire campaign.

Because of you, the Red Cross is always ready to respond to disasters big and small with care and comfort for those who need it the most.

I am so grateful to count you as one of our dedicated supporters. Without you, our work would simply not be possible.

Best wishes to you and your family this holiday season.

Lauri Rhinehart

VP, Humanitarian Services

American Red Cross
