One hundred percent of the net proceeds to be donated to the American Red Cross* for disaster relief to those affected by Hurricane Sandy and other disasters.
The Red Cross & Hurricane Sandy Relief:
The Red Cross continues to focus on reaching as many people as possible who need our help. Your help is urgently needed to continue to support relief efforts. Getting supplies and meals and water into affected areas is the top priority. Since the beginning of the Hurricane Sandy relief effort:
- More than 5,350 Red Cross workers have been assigned to operations from Virginia to Rhode Island, with the majority in Greater New York and throughout New Jersey.
- The Red Cross has provided more than 92,500 overnight shelter stays in more than 250 Red Cross shelters.
- More than 1 million meals and snacks have been served.
- The Red Cross has distributed more than 60,200 relief items such as clean-up kits and hygiene kits.
Notice: Support will be provided to the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy and other subsequent storms in the area.
The American Red Cross is able to accomplish its mission to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies because of generous donations of time and money from the American people.
All Red Cross emergency services are provided free to those whose lives are affected by disaster. We are not a government agency and we rely primarily on the generosity of our local residents and businesses to fund our programs. Thanks to the help of hundreds of volunteers, we are able to maximize every dollar donated to the work of the Red Cross in New Hampshire.
The Red Cross will honor the intent of the donor and any restrictions placed upon the gift.
