Nonprofit Spotlight: American Red Cross Hurricane Relief
SEPTEMBER 15, 2017
Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southern Texas on August 25, 2017, and is now being called the worst flooding disaster in United States history. In Harvey’s aftermath, the American Red Cross (ARC) has been instrumental in providing food, shelter, and support to individuals and families affected by the storm. As one of America’s largest and oldest nonprofits, ARC created the first nationwide civilian blood program and continues to collect over 40 percent of the nation’s blood donations.
