"The Red Cross brought smiles and reassurances."

 Ron Fletcher was home when a three-alarm fire broke out in his apartment building. He rushed out to join neighbors on the sidewalk. “It was chaos,” he said. “But the Red Cross was there right away. They brought smiles and reassurances that we’d be well taken care of.”

Ron’s wife, Sandra, has also been touched by the work of the Red Cross. Sandra lost contact with her father in Puerto Rico following a flood in the 1990s. “Within a week of contacting the Red Cross, they let me know he was safe,” she said. “Red Cross help has been essential in my life. When things are back on track, I’d like to become a Red Cross volunteer.”
