As part of a worldwide movement that offers neutral humanitarian care to the victims of war, the Knoxville chapter of the American Red Cross distinguishes itself by also aiding victims of devastating natural disasters. Today, in addition to domestic disaster relief, the American Red Cross offers compassionate services in five other areas: community services that help the needy; support and comfort for military members and their families; educational programs that promote health and safety; and international relief and development programs.
Donations from this month’s First Friday Five will support local disaster relief, military programs, CPR/First Aid training, and youth health and education programs in area schools and daycares. Go here to make your small donation of $5.00.
