The Red Cross is there when people are in trouble. Now, the local chapter needs your help.
Nine families have lost their homes to fires in January, which has placed an extra financial burden to the local chapter. This is reason enough to strongly support the Red Cross in its biggest annual fund-raiser, Dress Down Day.
T-shirts with an attractive patriotic design are being sold for $10 each with the goal of everyone wearing the shirts at a Red Cross event at Sonny's Bar-B-Q on Friday, April 5. Wearing the T-shirt on Friday, April 12, at Wild Adventures theme park will get you a 50 percent discount on admission.
In addition, local businesses that are listed on the back of the T-shirt will provide discounts throughout the year to purchasers.
We urge support for the Red Cross through this fund-raiser. For more information, call the American Red Cross at 242-7404.
