When disaster strikes, the American Red Cross steps in. Fires, floods, hurricanes can all leave us in trouble, without even the basics, and the American Red Cross is often the first to help.
Julie Dimitrov of the Palmetto Chapter, told us, "We provide their immediate emergency needs. That may take the form of food, clothing, and shelter. Then we work very closely with other community agencies."
To keep helping, the Red Cross needs your help. The Palmetto Chapter's putting on their sixth annual Hilton Head Island Run, Saturday, starting at 9am. You can register starting at 7am. The cost is $25, with the proceeds going toward disaster relief. And all the money they raise stays right here at home.
