Save A Family Week Starts Today!

The American Red Cross Save a Family – Local Relief Fund donation drive is planned for week of January 31-February 5.  Volunteers are needed for collections on the corners of Shaw and Cedar on Thursday, Feb. 3 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and at the Fresno State men’s basketball game on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m.
Volunteers from the Central Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross respond to families in a six county area offering help during times of disaster. This local relief includes emergency food, on site response, temporary shelter, CPR and first aid training and military communications, even helping members of our community after an apartment fire. In addition to local aid, your local Red Cross chapter has raised money for disasters in other parts of the country and region. Your local chapter needs help now to continue supporting those in our community who have experienced some type of emergency. All money raised during the Save a Family campaign will stay in our community.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Anya Goosev at the American Red Cross Central Valley by calling 455-1000 or by e-mailing her at To make a donation to your local Chapter of the American Red Cross please visit our website and change a life...starting with your own.
