#BigDoG2015

The Sacramento region “Big Day of Giving” is here! This is really exciting for the Red Cross because GIVING BIG is what makes our mission happen.

EVERY 11 HOURS Red Cross volunteers are out helping families who have lost everything, usually in a house fire. The cost of providing lodging, food and necessities for these families – about $550 per day – is covered entirely by the generosity of our donors. We receive no government funding to help these families, so our volunteers provide immediate comfort and our donors make sure they have a place to go.

How can you help us help them? Give to the Red Cross today through the Big Day of Giving. Our link to the Big Day is below – by clicking on that link and making a donation, you’ll be linking those we serve to the things they need.

“The Red Cross volunteers gave me and my children a hotel room, meals and clothing for three days after our home burned to the ground. This gave me the time to wrap my arms around what had happened and find long term solutions. I will always be grateful to our volunteers and your donors.” (Jennifer, Stockton.)

Every donation makes a difference to those we help. It’s a big day to meet some big needs – with your help we can make this happen!
