RED CROSS GIVES THANKS FOR COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Dear Source,
As Thanksgiving approaches, family and friends gather to give thanks for their good fortune over the past year.
The St. Thomas-St. John American Red Cross Chapter would like to take this opportunity to thank its family and friends as well.
Thousands of volunteers and members of our community have given their time, talents and generosity over the past year to help those in dire need. As a result, your St. Thomas-St. John Red Cross Chapter was able to provide disaster relief to 11 families whose homes were damaged or destroyed by fire by providing food, shelter, clothing, health and mental health services as needed. We also educated over 2,000 people in disaster preparedness either through individual contact or through group presentations.
With your donated dollar, we taught 1,186 members of your community life-saving skills such as CPR, first aid and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training. We also educated more than 10,000 people about how to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and connected 87 local military families with loved ones overseas.
It is your continuous commitment to providing warmth and support to other members of our community for which we at the St. Thomas-St. John Red Cross are so thankful.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, and know that you have truly made a positive difference this year.
Priscilla L. Hintz
Chair of the Board,
St. Thomas-St. John American Red Cross Chapter
(Member Agency of the United Way)
