The past few months have been extremely busy for the Red Cross from disaster responses to Hurricane Isaac along the Gulf to Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast.

“There is no way I can express my gratitude to the Red Cross, it is the best thing I have ever seen and one of the best organizations I have ever come across in my whole life,” said Manny Dinunzio who had no one where else to go, but a Red Cross shelter after his home was badly damaged by a tidal surge in Seaside Heights, N.J. during Hurricane Sandy.
In addition to these headline disasters, the Red Cross has also responded to home fires, floods, tornadoes, wildfires and other disasters throughout the past year. Meanwhile, the Red Cross continued to provide emergency services and assistance to members of the military, collect and distribute lifesaving blood, and train people across the country in first aid and CPR, aquatics and water safety.
