For so many things, we’re grateful

DSC_3027_cropWe have so much to be grateful for this past year. For tens of thousands of hours given by volunteers. For millions of dollars given by donors. For countless comforting hugs given to families coping with disasters. For hundreds of thousands of blood products collected to save lives. For tens of thousands trained in lifesaving skills. For thousands of heartwarming messages sent to military members and veterans. For tens of thousands reached in our communities with vital preparedness information. For more than one million connected to our region through digital outreach. For every hour, every hug, every dollar, every story shared to fulfill our mission of alleviating suffering – thank you. For sleeves up, hearts open, all in–the essence of everyone who supports the Red Cross. This past year you helped. For that we’re the most grateful of all.

To you and yours, and everyone, we wish a happy, healthy and bright New Year!
