Thank you to all of the organizations and businesses who are stepping up to help the American Red Cross respond to the devastation from the recent storms. Your gifts have and will continue to have a critical impact on the lives of hundreds of Oregonians. Special thanks to everyboat.com for their support. Please support them by browsing their huge list of boats for sale if you are in the market for one.
You can help the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year, disasters like the Pacific Northwest Floods, by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. This Fund enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to victims of disasters. The American Red Cross honors donor intent. If you wish to designate your donation to a specific disaster please do so at the time of your donation.
IMPORTANT: Donors wishing to make a gift to a specific city or county should contact the city hall or county commission in that community for information about how best to direct their gift.
If you have made a gift already to the Red Cross thinking it would be used to help only one specific city or county, please contact us at (503) 528-5634 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss refunding your gift, if you so choose.
Your Signature Needed
Come tax time, your signature could make a difference in the lives of thousands of Oregonians. That's because signing this petition will help the six Red Cross chapters in Oregon become a part of the State's Charitable Check-off Program.
Oregon's tax refund giving program allows residents to give a portion of their refund to any of the nonprofit organizations listed in the tax booklet. To be listed, the state of Oregon requires us to collect signatures from 10,000 registered Oregon voters. But this isn't a political petition - it's a way for the State to ensure each organization seeking charitable status has support throughout our community.
So here's your chance to help us help others...sign the petition online or download a hard copy to share with friends and family. It costs you nothing to sign, but your signature can help the Red Cross rebuild and save lives across Oregon.
Thank you to the 2007 Breakfast of Champions sponsors and guests who helped us raise more than $156,000 to meet the needs of our community.
Please join us March 11, 2008 to honor a new group of local heroes.
