Red Cross responds to Cibola fire

Arizona Red Cross deploys personnel to disaster scenes in Alabama and elsewhere...which after 130 years of impartial, humanitarian service is exactly what we've come to expect from the Red Cross..

However there is a lesser known facet of the Red Cross...

Here the last 24 hours.....A woman's house burned to the foundation in Cibola... everything including contents was one was injured but the loss was deep and personal...

Red Cross Disaster Action Team from Havasu and Quartzsite responded,  providing hope and assistance at no cost during a difficult time..

The Red Cross Disaster Action Team provided food, short term accommodations and replacement of medications lost in the fire... a change of clothes and personal hygiene items were also important

But most importantly.... Red Cross was there..

This is the local chapter main page....

All Red Cross disaster assistance is free thanks to the generosity of people like you. The value of your donation is increased by the fact that the ratio of volunteer Red Cross workers to paid staff is almost 36 to one. Contributions to the American Red Cross, a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, are deductible for computing income and estate taxes.
