Support Communities Who Need Your Help

Deadly tornadoes and storms tore across several southern states on Friday, James.

Entire communities have been devastated — and families are struggling to figure out their next steps after losing everything. As many as 2,000 structures were damaged or destroyed and entire blocks of homes have been wiped out leaving rubble, trees and debris piled up on neighborhood streets.

Over the last few days, the American Red Cross and our local partners have been working to provide shelter, meals, relief supplies and mental health support to ensure no one faces this devastation alone. James, will you rush an emergency donation now to help the individuals and families who have lost so much at the hands of these destructive storms?

We’ve been able to deliver emergency relief to families across the impacted areas thanks to the generosity of our supporters like you.

Thank you, again, for providing comfort and hope to families and communities in great need.
