To the Editor:
This holiday season, the Muskingum Lakes Chapter of the American Red Cross extends profound gratitude for the incredible support of the residents of Carroll, Harrison and Tuscarawas counties.  Because of your generosity our local Red Cross has been able to give critical support to those affected by home fires, while also providing help and hope to your neighbors in need here in our community. 

 As chairman of your local Red Cross, I’m extraordinarily grateful to be associated with an organization that makes a difference in our community every day.  The residents of our community who support the Red Cross through volunteer time, money or blood, shares in the special kinship of neighbors helping neighbors, whether they are around the block or across the globe.  It is only through your incredible spirit of generosity that the Muskingum Lakes Chapter stands ready, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Fires are just part of the story.  Our local Red Cross is made up of friends and neighbors, showing youth how to swim, teaching first aid and CPR classes, educating kids how to be safe, or helping reconnect military families separated by crisis and conflict around the world. 

The Red Cross offers all of these services thanks to the generous support of people like you.  While disasters capture the headlines, it is more important than ever before to support our local Red Cross, so that no one in our community must ever face an emergency alone.  Learn how to get involved by contacting the chapter at 330.343.8633 or visit www.mlcredcross.org.
