Generous Donors Allow Red Cross to Respond Swiftly and Effectively to Southeastern Virginia Tornadoes
Date:5/5/2008

dividuals and families affected by the Southeastern Virginia tornadoes. We thank our supporters for helping to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors through donations to the Red Cross. We hope people will continue to support our Disaster Relief Fund, which enabled such an efficient and effective response to the Southeastern Virginia tornadoes," said Mary S. Elcano, Acting President and CEO of the American Red Cross. "The Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 disasters each year, and the Disaster Relief Fund ensures that help will be immediately available in neighborhoods across the country whenever disasters occur."

Many donations to the relief efforts remain in "pledge" form and, while not yet received by the Red Cross, have been incorporated into the estimate of funds raised for the Southeastern Virginia tornadoes response. The cost of the Red Cross's relief operations is estimated not to exceed $127,000. It is important for supporters to fulfill their pledged gifts.

The Red Cross is committed to keeping donors and the public informed of how donations are being used to provide ongoing relief and has a standard practice of informing the public when sufficient funds have been raised to cover the costs associated with a Red Cross disaster response. The Red Cross will no longer initiate fundraising activities specifically for the Southeastern Virginia tornadoes, but will continue to urge the public to donate to the Disaster Relief Fund or their local Red Cross chapter so the Red Cross can be there whenever and wherever people need us.

All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. You can help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year, disasters like floods, tornadoes and hurricanes, by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counselin
