Chapter Accepting Donations for International, National and Local Disaster

Relief

DETROIT, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Red Cross is currently responding to recent catastrophic events worldwide, including the earthquake in China's Sichuan Province and Cyclone Nagris in Myanmar, in the form of financial resources, relief supplies, and trained response workers if and when needed.

The American Red Cross is currently working closely with the Red Cross Societies in China and in Myanmar to assess needs and determine the most effective course of action. The Southeastern Michigan Chapter of the American Red Cross is prepared to receive donations in support of these efforts, as well as deploy trained disaster relief efforts both nationally and internationally if need be.

"The situations in China and Myanmar are beyond devastating," said Jim Laverty, CEO of the Southeastern Michigan Chapter. "As we are doing everything we can to provide help, we ask metro Detroiters to remember that the Southeastern Michigan Chapter responds to 4-6 home fires and other disasters per day right here at home. We are grateful for the support shown once again by southeast Michigan. Please designate a portion of donations to local disaster relief efforts so that your local Red Cross can continue to provide needed support to residents of southeast Michigan as well as victims of disasters nationally and internationally."

In addition to national and international response, the Southeastern Michigan Chapter has locally responded in May alone to 57 single-family home fires and serviced 53 families with temporary food, clothing, shelter and mental health support.

Upon receiving donations intended for China and Myanmar relief efforts, the Red Cross of Southeastern Michigan will forward them on to the national American Red Cross, who will in turn distribute the donations overseas. The American Red Cross always honors donor intent and asks that contributions for specific disasters be designated at the time of donation. Residents of southeast Michigan interested in supporting international, national, and/or local disaster relief efforts can do so by calling 1-877-788-0014 or visiting http://www.detroitredcross.org .
