In Case You Missed It - Mar 9

Red Cross Volunteers teamed-up with Batman this weekend to
help teach fire safety to attendees of the Big Apple Con.
Over the last 7 days, the Greater New York Red Cross provided emergency assistance to 68 adults and 36 children following 42 local disasters. Here are some highlights from last week and a preview of some upcoming events (see below).

Last Week in Review

Upcoming Events
  • Mar. 9 & 11: Red Cross blood drive; 1 to 7pm; 520 West 49th Street, Manhattan. Schedule an appointment to donate today.
  • Mar. 10: The Brooklyn Nets will host an American Red Cross Awareness Night (versus the New Orleans Pelicans). For every discounted ticket sold, the Brooklyn Nets will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Red Cross. If 200 tickets are sold, the Red Cross will be honored with special halftime recognition.
