Unfortunately, these organizations have had to address a lot more emergencies and recovery support the last few years.
- The American Red Cross. Southern Arizona Red Cross Chapter.
"Give Life, Give Love, Give Blood" - a faded Red Cross bumper sticker on my little well-loved pickup. The Red Cross is still hip-deep in Hurricane and earthquake recovery.
Please donate blood or funds if you can.
- World Care - Civilian Emergency Relief Fund.
I Love what this organization does and how they do it! They are located here in Tucson and they help people all around the world. Their mission is to "provide humanitarian relief by recycling surplus materials and supply to create usable resources for health, education and sustainable communities worldwide". I've seen them pull together pallets of donated items to take to Haiti, New York... they go where they're needed.
Lastly - the Bloggess featured this organization in late November:
- Project Night Night - A Project Night Night bag gifted to a homeless child contains: "a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal - all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag." $20.00 will underwrite the cost of a Night Night Package.
