This is personal to me. I can attest to the help that the RED CROSS offers during these disasters. My family and I were personally affected when our home was destroyed by hurricane Andrew. Most everyone we knew in Miami was either instantly homeless or had their homes extremely damaged. We could not lean on one another other than to compare our storm stories. It was FEMA that repaired the infrastructure and cleared the debris, but it was the help offered by the RED CROSS that really made a difference for us. You don’t know what difference your donation will make, but be assured, it WILL make a difference! — Stephanie True Moss
