"Click, text or call" to support
disaster readiness, relief and recovery across the U.S.
WASHINGTON, Tuesday, July 27, 2010 -
The American Red Cross has launched a new fundraising drive in anticipation
of a very active hurricane season that could be made even worse by the
Gulf Coast oil spill.
"We are worried about predictions
of a severe hurricane season and the possibility that people will need
to evacuate their homes for longer periods of time, given the oil in the
Gulf," said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the Red Cross.
