After the turkey, after the Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday, comes #GivingTuesday and we want to encourage the community to get involved with the American Red Cross. All of the following are wonderful ways to give something that means something this holiday season:
· Donate Blood
· Shop our holiday catalog
· Attend a Red Cross event
The Red Cross is able to do what we do thanks to the generosity of our community. Whether it is a cancer patient in need of blood and platelets or a family who has just lost everything in a house fire, the Red Cross is there each and every day, 24 hours a day.
The Kansas Region covers the entire state of Kansas, except the following counties:
Anderson, Atchison, Brown, Doniphan, Douglas, Franklin, Johnson, Leavenworth, Linn, Miami and Wyandotte.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
