Red Cross Salutes North Texas Tornado Relief Supporters

by Amy Yen, Digital Communications Manager, American Red Cross North Texas Region

As we continue relief efforts in Granbury and Cleburne after the deadly tornado outbreak last week, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our corporate supporters who we work closely with to meet specific needs for our relief effort--from providing lunch to our volunteer team who worked through the night after the tornadoes hit to providing sunscreen for residents who are sifting through the debris trying to salvage belongings.

HEB donated $30,000 worth of gift cards to residents
so they could purchase food & supplies.
TXU provided work gloves & flashlights for
residents as they begin the clean-up effort.
Blue Bell brought ice cream to our disaster operation
headquarters, giving a break to our hard-working
disaster workers!
Thanks so much to all of these supporters:

Mary Kay
Dr Pepper Snapple
Taco Bueno
7 Eleven
God's Hand Ups
Blue Bell Ice Cream

Your support is so important to our efforts. We're lucky to have supporters like you.
