A Busy Season for the American Red Cross

Since late March of this year, the American Red Cross (http://www.redcross.org/) has responded to 42 disasters in the U.S., from fires to floods and tornadoes.  They’ve opened 270 shelters, and handed out over 3 million meals.  Take a look at the map linked here  http://www.redcross.org/www-files/Documents/pdf/donation/HowWeAreHelping.pdf  to see the distribution by state of their activities as of June 15, 2011.  I’m struck by the fact that the American Red Cross functions as the good neighbor for the whole country.
