In Case You Missed It

Students fitted for free bicycle helmets as part of our Safety Town program in Greenwich, CT.

Over the last seven days, the Greater New York Red Cross provided emergency assistance to 112 adults and 40 children for 44 local disaster responses. Here are some highlights from last week and a preview of upcoming activities. (See below.)

Last Week in Review
  • On June 12, we joined the Friends of Crown Heights to help stock and ship emergency care packages to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Caribbean nation recently impacted by volcanic eruptions.
  • We held an online presentation on how to prepare, respond and recover from local emergencies and large-scale disasters, co-hosted by Senator Alexis Weik, on Tuesday, June 8.

Upcoming Events and Activities
  • June 14 to June 30: We partnered with Amazon to encourage New Yorkers to donate blood and save lives. Those who donate will receive a $5 Amazon gift card. Type O blood is especially needed!
