Where Does Your Money Go?

A shelter resident of the 2011 tornadoes in Tuscaloosa, Alabama opens up a comfort kit at a Red Cross shelter

For those who graciously donate to the East Georgia Chapter of The Red Cross, each cent is put to work to help others prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. But what exactly does that mean?

In more tangible terms:

  • $3 provides ONE comfort kit
  • $10 provides ONE hot meal
  • $20 provides ONE clean up kit
  • $25 provides THREE meals
  • $30 provides FIVE blankets
  • $50 food + shelter for ONE person for ONE day
  • $200 food + shelter for family of FOUR for ONE day

Just the other day we met a couple at our Inspire Tour who gave throughout last year and their combined donation in 2011 fully sheltered, fed, and comforted one of our 234 families devastated by fire. It is inspiring to see how donations are translated into real help for real people!

HOW TO DONATE:

  • By Phone: Call our local chapter at 706-353-1645 and speak with Jeff Taylor who will be     happy to lead you through our donating process
  • By Mail: Send a check to American Red Cross East Georgia Chapter 490 Pulaski Street Athens, GA 30601 Online: American Red Cross East Georgia
